Chapman is much more valuable with a one run lead in the 7th when the starter lets the 1st 2 guys on base than he is in the 9th when the reds are down b/c he wasnt utilized properly in the 7th.
Interesting point. Agree with you on those situations. Sometimes the "save" is actually earlier.
Goes back to what my original premise was: if he's going to be a Red, get more out of his gifted arm.
