Re: Please tell me the Reds aren't keeping Aroldis at closer...
If they want to try Chapman inthe rotation, but I'm not so sure you should be penciling him in as the next Justin Verlander just yet.
1) Will he be as dominant with his fastball as a starter at 94-95MPH as opposed to 99+ as a closer?
2) Will he be able to work his offspeed stuff in effectively enough as a starter?
3) Will the command issues he saw as a starter in the minors be ironed out as easily when his innings lengthen out as many here seem to think?
4) Are the Reds gonna want to "Strassberg" him in August when he reaches 150-160 ip in the middle of a pennant drive? Or will they keep pitching him, knowing he had fatigue issues this year pitching reliever's innings?
