Getting 200 innings of ace-like performance is far more likely to make a team win than 70 innings of a shutdown closer. Chapman might feel more comfortable now as a closer, but that's because he just did it last year. Choo feels more comfortable as a RF, but that doesn't mean he can't play CF, too. Broxton, Hoover et al. are more than capable of holding down the fort while the team sees what it has in Chapman. If he fails, he can always go back.
