103 mph gets face-time.

I would say that Chapman would be on the cover.

Here's one SI photo of Chapman:

I think either bullpen gets the love, or maybe the young guys get a look (meso, frazier, cozart)

Yeah I believe it would have to be Chapman. With a pic of Votto and Phillips watching from the bench.

My first guess would be Chapman, he fits the profile of what SI wants to talk about.

Is it too farfetched to guess that Dusty might be on the cover? His team is the best in baseball and after a long career he's still searching for that WS ring, and it just might be in his grasp...That's magazine article material imo

Unless the Reds manage to compete in the Olympics over the next 3day days, I don't see them on the SI cover next week. If they somehow are, I see aa shot of Chapman, or a pic that has several of their stars in the same shot, possibly a home plate celebration, with some sort of Big Red Machine play on words/comparison.

It would be Dusty flipping the bird with a huge smile on his face. The cover article would then go into detail about his contract extension. :D

Or it could be Stubbs and the unluckiest man alive.

But seriously.....Dusty is the easiest story

It'll be another Dusty losing his job article. Titled...."Haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love".

Maybe a couple of wheelchairs with speedpacks attached to them. And a pirate ship looming in the background. :eek:
