    Chapman too stuffed to pitch?

    *to pitch

    Saw this on Lance's blog... Don't know how big of a deal this is but it doesn't look good after yesterday's performance.

    “Could you imagine cream cheese and guava on a baked pastry? Well Chapman asked me for a box of 100, two boxes of 50. When I saw him on Sunday morning before the game, he was in the club house, he had just eaten about 18 of them. He couldn’t breathe! I looked at my partner, I said, ‘he’s ripe for the taking today.”

    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    I wouldn't look into it at all. Sounds like it was a good 7-8 hours before he even pitched.

    and you still have a typo in your thread title

    Wouldn't surpirse me that its true. Chapman has shown he isn't the most mature person off the field.

    I'm still wondering if that's a sweater under the tee shirt.

    well, hopefully he was humbled enough to learn his lesson.
    I guess we have to chalk another one up to Chapman's general immaturity.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    wat
    "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."

    Wow, maybe he should have a come to Jesus meeting with Lance Lynn, the new king of "best shape of my life." What's next, puffing on Cubans in the tunnel?

    Little known fact: "2 Stuffed 2 Pitch" is the song Hammer originally wanted to release, but producers convinced him to change it to "2 Legit 2 Quit." And the rest is history.

    I wonder where Dusty, Price and Jocketty come down on pre-game pastry eating?

    1) Dusty
    2) Walt
    3) Price
