Hope I'm allowed to post the link, but a pretty good read here on Chapman.

Is the Todd Jones who wrotes that, the ex-pitcher?

answer: Just looked it up, and no.

Nice article. I didn't know that Chapman was so untrusting of everyone though.

Todd Jones did write when he was with the Tigers. Guess he quit both jobs in retirement.

Yeah, that's why I thought it might be him.

I would assume that would come from living in Cuba and having limited freedoms. I could certainly understand how he feels. Thanks for posting the article. It was a good write up of Chapman.

He actually stated '“I don’t trust anybody, only my mother,” Chapman told USA TODAY Sports earlier this season. “Life here has shown me you can’t trust anybody.'

So his stay in the US has given him this trust issue. Odd, but ok.

We chatted with Chapman outside of Wrigley on Sat. He posed for pictures with us and was very nice. My buddy hailed him a cab. Seemed like average guy outside the lines.
