Looks like I'm going to the game tomorrow, I wonder if they will use him.

Well after Harang goes all of 3 innings pitched, it's very likely he will be in to pitch at some point during the game.

I don't even know who is going up and going down. So whats the move going to be with Harang and Chapman this time? Who's going down? Francisco again? LeCure?

They haven't said, but I have to believe it's going to be Francisco and LeCure.

Walkup crowd tomorrow may be the best of the season.

Tomas Vera, the Bats trainer, and Chapman's interpreter, will also join the reds, according to the Bats broadcast.

Expect to see Dragons pitching coach Tony Fossas with him as soon as the Dragons season ends on Labor Day, if not sooner

I also hear the Reds are installing a port-a-let in the bullpen in case Aroldis needs to go to the bathroom close to the 9th inning.

Well, with the bullpen getting a lot of work last night, Chapman could easily see work in his first day.

The kid has electric stuff, but I am NOT putting all my hopes on him. I was at a game in Louisville earlier this year where he struggled with his command. Every pitch was either a ball, or right down the middle. He gave up 6 runs in less than two innings. My fear is the first time he does that in Cincinnati, everyone will want to run him out of town, calling him "overpaid" or "a bust".

Hope this sparks a crowd to top the pathetic >15,000 we saw last night.

Can't wait to see him throw.

What differences are there in calling him up 8/31 versus 9/1 with the expanded 40-man roster?

Speaking of the callup, I went immediately to the ticket office last night right before the game started because I was there already. Didn't wanna go through the hassle of getting walk-ups. It's going to be packed at the ticket office tonight IMO.
