I'll never forget how excited I was. It had been a very boring offseason up to that point. Up until Jay Bruce's walk-off division clinching HR on September 28th, the day Chapman signed was probably the most I had been excited about the Reds since they acquired Ken Griffey Jr. back in February 2000.
It happened during the Green Bay loss; that I remember very clearly. So maybe BOTH teams will go further in the playoffs this year. (reaching, I know)
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
