Chapman is pitching great this year. I mean great. I mean great-as-Pedro-Martinez-in-his-prime great. Would it be inaccurate to say he's on the list of players with the highest ceilings in the history of baseball? He's really figuring things out. But you know--maybe I'm wrong? Should we expect incurring injuries to linger throughout his career? Is this merely a stretch of good luck? Will he have a mental meltdown? I know it's ridiculous. But stranger things have happened.

I think you are pushing it a bit with the Pedro comparison, for now.

Chapman still hasn't made a start in his life and Pedro put up the best two year stretch in the history of baseball.

He's the greatest man that's ever lived.

I think a better comparison to start with at this point in time is David Price.

Okay, okay. Walter Johnson then.

If he develops a plus change, avoids injuries, then he goes to the hall first ballot.

As long as he never has to pitch to Jim Coombs...
