Chapman might have been affordable because of the money freed up, but he had little to do with the Reds winning this year.
Even still, that has nothing to do with chemistry or a toxic clubhouse. Griffey and Dunn were two of the more well liked guys on the team. They also took care of the younger players.
I agree. I could understand the argument that Griffey and Dunn weren't a negative as much as a guy like Rolen is a positive. I still think the team is just better, but I could at least see the merit in that argument.
