Re: Chapman will close
I think it's also worth mentioning that we don't see his bullpens. He may just not be able to develop the consistency needed to start.
To me, this seems so simple. If Chapman can start, then he should start. Plain and simple. However, logically, I have to think that if it were that simple and he really had the ability to be the next Randy Johnson, then the organization would have done it. What else would explain blowing all that money on Broxton if they didn't intend to start him? They're not going to knowingly weaken their starting rotation just to appease the wishes of Aroldis Chapman.
