It's like everyone on here honestly believes that Dusty sits down and deliberately picks the more dumb decision without considering anything.
We don't know what Chapman can or can't do as a starter because he has not learned how to be a starter. At one time Randy Johnson couldn't find the plate to save his life, but with time in the minor leagues with good coaches look what happen to him.
