While the guy he finished behind is a starter, Chapman finished ahead of all the other starters in the majors, including both Cy Yound Award winners.
I'm advocating neither position of this debate by this post, BTW.
Of course there are two ways to look at it and that was the point. The OP made a comment that the REDS should leave well enough alone. To which a counterpoint was made that #1 guy was a starter, so perhaps AC's win share might get better as a starter. 2nd is pretty impressive though (of course and we all witnessed his dominance as a closer). My argument will always be the chance to get 27 outs in a single game is far greater than getting the last 3 outs in a single game. I guess I show what I am advocating lol.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
