That is an awesome video. I felt like I was standing there watching it live.

Chapman is very, very impressive. I hope he pitches in one of the ST games that are televised.

The man looks like a more under control D-Train.

Thanks for posting that video! It just whets the appetitie to see more of him. Looks like he has a nice easy motion which should bode well for his arm and back.

Per C. Trent, live batting practice for Aroldis next Wednesday according to Price. Price apparently also said he imagined they would stock that session with RH bats...

Electric arm, highly athletic for a pitcher. He's going to be really fun to watch.

It's going to take time for him to grow into his potential, so I'd advise folks to enjoy the flashes and chalk up the rough spots to inexperience. IMO, he's got a very good chance to be really good -- just not right away.

I'll keep my fingers crossed. Good to see the fellers limbering up. That made my arm hurt! :D

Exactly who I thought of.

BTW 1st 2 guys out the door at the beginning of the video Devin Mesoraco (looking in good shape, i.e. no pudginess IMO) and Homer Bailey (is he listed as taller than Aroldis?). And then came Herrera after Aroldis and Homer looking like the ball boy or something.

My first thought? DRH is Ray Mysterio.

Danny Ray Herrera looks like someones little brother tagging along.

One thing I did notice about Chapman is the high leg kick out of the stretch. I hope he has a good pick off move.

He has an excellent pickoff move. He picked off at least a couple of guys in the WBC.

Everyone looks good in spring training, but I do have high hopes.

Agreed, I think we all have high hopes this time of year. :)

The word "IF" takes on a whole new meaning during spring training, sometimes it seems all our hopes and expectations can be crammed into one little two letter word.

looks free and easy, my hope is if he mows downs batters al ST they dont waste him in AA for 2 months, let him pitch in the majors those 5 or 6 wins could cost you the chance to make the playoffs as a wild card

How about "A-Train" for a nickname?
