Re: AWESOME article on Aroldis Chapman
I just don't think the article connected the dots all that well.
IMO, Chapman pitched like a veteran last season, dominating in tough situations. That stoic appearance as a reliever is likely what you'll see as a starter. And, if he is that stoic, there shouldn't be any concerns about his "nerves".
Is he perfect?
Far from it.
However, once upon a time, I remember a 1,000+ post thread about Votto's "mental issues". He's a kid, IMO. Much ado about nothing.
