    Hmmm... so if Seattle is getting $19 million from the Cards, why would they be so "desperate" to unload Leake??

    Still seems like a solid deal. Having an anchor type at 4/5 is a good thing

    Gotcha... Leake is serviceable and an immensely low-risk addition for us. He's a contact pitcher which could be "interesting" in places like Chase Field and Coors Field...
    He's a savvy veteran though... With Greinke gone, I guess we'll go with a rotation of: 1.) Ray, 2.) Gallen, 3.) Leake 4.) Young 5.) Clarke??

    Somewhere you gotta throw Kelly in there, and next year add in Weaver and Walker. I expect Kelly to be the odd man out.

    One of those 6 (Ray, Gallen, Leake, Young, Clarke, Kelly) is going to the pen.

    I agree. I’m just thinking about the now. I REALLY hope Weaver & Walker can come back and be productive!

    I suspect Young, Clarke and Kelly will all be out with Weaver and Walker returning (fingers crossed)

    Yep, swapping Greinke for Leake was pretty much the death knell for the Dbacks playoff hopes.
