I know they want to keep Chapman from pitching too many consecutive days, but why Broxton? It's very common for set up guys and closers to pitch three, four, sometimes five days in a row.
I have a memory that they don't like to use Brox too many days in a row. Not sure why and maybe I'm wrong, but I think that was the working premise last year.
As for Chapman, my guess is that they will use him in a one-run game to close today. Or if it's a long extra innings game, my guess is they will use him.
I think they will try to stay away from him under other circumstances.
