Re: Jeff Passan of Yahoo: Reds to sign Cuban lefty Aroldis Chapman?
I posted this in the Scott Rolen trade thread on July 31, 2009
As someone who has actually seen Zach Stewart pitch in person, you can't help but cringe at seeing him included in this type of deal. For those of you that question his talent, he is at least a taller healthy Scott Williamson right now. And yet he has room for growth.
My initial reaction was a stream of obscenity.
EE and Roenicke + Chaff for Rolen and Cash OK
EE, Roenicke, and Stewart for Rolen and Cash, they had better sign Aroldis Chapman.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
