    Reds got Chapman

    Per ORG, per yahoo!.

    This deserves a thread of its own!

    Non-stop Delta flight left FLL for Cincinnati at 9:20 this morning. Another source said $30 million deal is for five years.

    2 minutes ago from web Narrowed it down: It's an NL Central team. Cincinnati making more and more sense. Reds "going after him like crazy," team source said.

    4 minutes ago from web Cuban LHP Aroldis Chapman agrees to $30M deal with National League team, according to source. Left Ft. Lauderdale airport this a.m. to sign.

    If they signed him, things are gonna get very interesting.

    Harang or Bronson will have to go, to make room on the payroll.

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    On January 10, 2010, the Cincinnati Reds signed Aroldis Chapman to a 5 year, $30,000,000 contract. This is the latest of signings for the Cincinnati Reds in the Latin American market.

    I don't know. He looks good, but keep in mind he's never pitched an inning in the majors. This is really a risky move.

    But his upside is nothing we've had the privilege of being a part of in recent years. The Reds are making a risky move on an unproven major league talent. However, the Reds ARE making a move. We're taking a gamble. That alone is something worthy of praise.

    I think I just had a minor heartattack. Nice too see a move made. Especially since it's a guy with this much potential.

    That may well be our 2011 rotation (in no particular order)... but you're right: it's in 2012 that that rotation (in no particular order) ought to be solidified and mature enough to strike fear in the hearts of any opponent.

    Now, let's hear that the Coresponding Roster Move (to make room for Chapman on the 40-man) be waiving Taveras, and this will be the greatest day in Reds off-season history...
