Chapman is not closer material. He's too lanky and wears down quickly. I think Broxton is signed through next season and he should be the closer. I believe Hoover will eventually get the chance. I've heard that the Tigers will release Brennan Boesch. He was left off the post season roster. He's young and bats left and has some pop in his bat. Would be a nice compliment to Ludwick and Heisey. Gotta find replacements for Cairo and Valdez.
If Chapman goes in the rotation, I guess Leake is the odd man out. I know a lot of people hate Leake and are blaming him for losing the series. And I can't argue the fact that he is the fifth starter without a doubt. But, he's not bullpen material. In addition he's still young and apparently has some really good stuff, just gets too much of the plate at times. I would say trade bait. But, you would be trading for back up players.
