Chapman's Other Value
With all the questioning about Chapman to the rotation, I got around to thinking... is there any kind of way we could put a number on how much he earns the club outside of his value on the mound? I'm referring to merchandising and publicity, mostly... I've met many a kid that wants to stay until the end of Reds games just because he came to see Chapman pitch. What kind of money does he earn for the Reds as a closer that he couldn't replicate going every fifth day as a starter, and vice versa? Is there any way we could put a number on it?
