Just a terrible outing by Chapman, and Broxton wasn't much better in the 8th. This bullpen isn't as good as their reputation.

    Today seems like payback for our win against Kimbrel and the Braves.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Last year we had an CY ACE in Cueto, ROY in Frazier, GG in Phillips, MVP in Votto, fireball closer in Chapman, Nasty bullpen, awesome starting pitching, Most improved player in Ludwick and a No hitter in bailey and a fall short Epic fail in the end. That stuff sells tickets.

    This year we have??? DL Cueto, DL ludwick, Slumping Frazier and Cozart, so-so closer Chapman, so-so bullpen, so-so starting pitching, GG Phillips, MVP Votto, Choo Choo nasty, a German bomber, and a heating up Bruce. A lot of questions yet to be answered.

    So-SO starting pitching? They have had good to great starting pitching this year.

    Hate to say it, but a 1/4 of the way through the closer spot is not anything special for this team....3.32 ERA, 8 of 10 in save situations, looks like a Coco Cordero stat line, good but not great....

    What was wrong with Broxton? He pitched just fine.

    I thought the same thing. It seems like all of these closers go through funks during the season. Kimbrell just went through one and now he's back to dominating. I suspect Chapman will be back to dominating before long.

    You are so clueless it's sad. Chapman's having a bad month, they happen. Put on your big boy pants and act like an adult about it.

    He faced 4 batters, allowing a hit, a walk and an earned run. He didn't get hit hard, but he definitely wasn't effective either.

    He's been pretty bad over his last 10 appearances. He has an ERA over that stretch of 6.23 (6 ER in 8.2 IP) and has a K/BB ratio of 11/7. Call it a bad month if you want, but that's not exactly a tiny sample size for a closer who's only going to throw 70-75 innings the entire season.
