Not one of Hal's best articles.
You know who else is one of the leaders of said pack? Walt Jocketty. As I mentioned earlier, there is no freakin' way a shrewd GM like Mr. Jocketty would sign Jonathan Broxton to a 3-year, $21 million deal if he wasn't convinced Chapman was moving to the rotation.
It was 100 percent obvious to me when Broxton was re-signed that the Reds were all-in on Chappy to the rotation.
