I'd do Chapman straight up for Stanton.
Doesn't matter if the Fish have a closer. They have the rebuilding time to make him a starter.
And I've said time and time again, Chapman being Cuban probably makes him popular in Miami.
Then I let Broxton and Hoover share the Closer role, hoping Hoover takes it.
