My only issue with that is Chapman has shown some dominance out of the pen in AAA while not showing so much as a starter yet. Going into the playoffs IF we make it we may be able to ride a rotation of Arroyo, Cueto, Bailey, and either Volquez or Wood making the the few starts where we have to use a 4th starter.
We all know how Cueto, Bailey, and Volquez struggle to go deep into games. Chapman can be in line for an extremely important role as a 5th and 6th, or 6th and 7th inning lights out guy out of the pen. If Chapman dominates in a relief role, we may have the closest thing to the nasty boys we have seen since 1990 with Chapman, Masset, Rhodes, and CoCo.
