That's the "pitching that keeps you in games." Chapman is not keeping you in games. In fact, he's seldom IN games. That is the spirit of my question. Is there greater value in considering him as part of a deal?
I think one of the main reasons we're seeing Chapman in the pen this year is because we had so many viable options for the rotation. That's not going to be the case moving forward. Dealing Chapman now...sure, it might help us overall this year (possible, but I doubt it) but you also have to look at the longer picture.
