I know I have an inherent bias against Leiter for 1999 (Yes, I'm still angry... Call me petty if you'd like.), but he really didn't seem to care to have all the information. It's almost as if he thought Chapman was all fastball and nothing else...
I guess I just had more expectations for the MLB preview... It was basically worthless.
If you know the Reds like most of us, it was, as I stated, a pre-K level of info.
If you did not know much or anything about the Reds and watched the show to learn something, you are essentially just as ignorant as before.
The only item I enjoyed was the interview with Jay Bruce where he spoke of his leverage with his swing and how he tries to get good backspin from the contact point...
