Seriously, why in the world would you pull Arroyo here? It probably won't matter, but still, that's a strange move.
Great start by Arroyo: 8IP, 4H, 0ER, 0BB, 3K
where has chapmans fastball velocity gone?

Nice pitch. Arenado strikes out looking
Chapman hasn't pitched much. Needs the work.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
Once you get the 3 run lead, you've already told Bronson he was done so he's mentally checked out. So he's done regardless. They had Chapman throwing at full steam, might as well use him. Warming and sitting usually is a bad idea. Worse if it's done multiple times of course, but the point remains.
