Nothing you have said is wrong, yet the stats suggest that you chances of coming back against Chapman are about the same as Broxton, Cordero or whoever.
Motte has the rep of blowing saves all the time, yet the fact is, while he blows saves by giving up HR's occasionally, he'll save you games 85% of the time.
