I just wouldn't be comfortable dropping Chapman and Leake. Who is our closer if we trade arguably the best closer in baseball? I also am not ready to give up on Leake..pretty good 5th starter (especially when compared to 5th starters around the league) and he is young...hoping he will get back to his 2011 form.
