    I wonder if it will be a Major League (40 Man roster) deal?

    And Mike Leake! Leake will begin 2010 in Double-A and should be ready for the majors by 2011.

    Cueto, Volquez, Bailey, Chapman.
    Does any team in the majors have 4 young arms like that?
    Leake ain't a shabby 5th

    He looks like Dontrelle Willis to me when i see him pitch. Maybe he can bring some 2003 marlins like magic to the Reds.
    On one of the videos on mlb.com Reynolds was saying the Yankees and Red Sox backed off because they didn't see him as somebody who would help them win in 2010.

    Definatley agree with the Willis comparasion as well.

    agree with those who state Super Mario can work with the kid to develop the changeup.

    agree with those who are happy with the Reds ever expanding prescence in Latin America.

    watched some videos on Chapman. very easy motion.

    I hope not... all that I'm reading makes it sound like he could use some time in AA and AAA. We have depth, I think there is NO reason to rush him

    I'm not usually one to say "Oh so and so has two good pitches but lacks a change? Sign him, Mario will give him a plus change!". But with the language barrier, a chance to work with a coach who understands you and can develop one of your weaknesses. I think that, and the chance to play with a team with a young Latin core was a good selling point for him.
