    Charlie! I said, what time is it?

    Half past eleven.

    SUSAN
    I mean in New York.

    KANE
    Half past eleven.

    SUSAN
    At night?

    KANE
    Yes. The bulldog's just gone to
    press.

    SUSAN
    (sarcastically)
    Hurray for the bulldog!

    Half past eleven! The shows have
    just let out. People are going to
    night clubs and restaurants. Of
    course, we're different. We live
    in a palace - at the end of the

    You always said you wanted to live
    in a palace.

    Can't we go back, Charlie?

    If he's pining for Cuba why not send him to Miami?

    Yeah, I'm probably being too harsh.

    My son is just a month older than Chapman and he's just now getting his head out of his butt. At least Chapman knows he can be preyed upon and is avoiding that. He'll find his path eventually. It will just be very visible.

    He's having an existential crisis. Having already stood on the tallest mountains at age 23 can do that. The answer is to climb the mountain within, Aroldis.

    I wanted to ask, "What did you do with your time in Cuba?"

    On the other hand, I'd rather him be sleeping his days away over going out partying, racing his cars, or any of the other really destructive things he might do with his time.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I guess when you get up at 4pm, your mother is raising your 4 year old daughter. Sad. His God given talent will start to waste away along with the money.

    I think about Arroyo and how he works out and keeps himself in shape. This is why he's just signed a 23 million dollar contract at age 38. What are the odds Chapman is playing in the majors 13 years from now? How about 5 years from now?
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    lol or the actual mother is raising the daughter. Until 4.

    Most dads work until 5 or later, guess they aren't raising their kids in your opinion!

    Lot of overreaction in this thread.

    Also, Chapman is ripped. He clearly lifts and takes care of himself.

    Many Cincinnati fans just can't be happy unless every Red is Pete Rose and thinks of nothing but baseball 24/7.

    The offseason is Chapman's "weekend" in laymen terms. Most dads don't sleep in till 4 on their days off with their young children around.

    Look, I'm not judging Chapman, but you equated his offseason to an Everyday Joe who works 8-5 or so.

    Apples and oranges. No one really knows.

    Man, there is a huge difference between "doesn't think about baseball 24/7" and. "sleeps in until 4 pm because he doesn't want to do anything else."
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I've been down this road.

    go to bed. get up as late as humanly possible to do the things you need to do; drink rum. work out. drink rum. go to class. drink rum. work out/play baseball. take a nap mainly to be sober at work. go to work. go to bed. get up as late as humanly possible to do the things you need to do; drink rum. work out. drink rum. go to class. drink rum. work out/play baseball. take a nap mainly to be sober at work. go to work. go to bed.

    did that for almost two years in university. I don't recommend it. and in my case, depression and denial were the root reasons for me. I'd probably still be doing that if I knew I was guaranteed that kind of signing bonus and contract Chapman has.
