Beltran would have a rebirth under Dusty and Reyes is a stud. Let's get this done and win the Central, NL and play for all the marbles. Having prospects and being lauded for that is fun, having victory parades is FUNNER!!!!
Two or three weeks? He needs a whole season at AAA, maybe more to get his control good enough to become a starter. And even still, pitch control doesn't just pop out of the ground; most guys have it or they don't. So really, it's arguably a long-shot if Chapman ever becomes a starter. You think Volquez is bad? Chapman would throw pitches all over the place over 5-7 innings.
It's like everyone on here honestly believes that Dusty sits down and deliberately picks the more dumb decision without considering anything.
