Ironically, the only factual type language I see is your "End of Story" You also didn't really address my question about Reds front office ever making a mistake.
I don't read the Enquirer so I'm not aware of this article.
If they decide that Chappy should start, I hope it works out. I will gladly have a huge slice of humble pie in exchange for a big time dominant starter. I simply don't think he has the toolset to start. Heck, he may even be unstable enough that he can't recover from the attempted change. Only time will tell.
I was talking about people in general, not you in particular.
Chapman was given time off last year after a stretch of ineffective relief pitching. How that leads people to believe he's incapable of throwing a starters ininngs is beyond me. This is a guy who was a starter until a few seasons ago and spent all last offseason/spring training in that role.
I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
