    I'm a little concerned that they had Chapman throwing in the bullpen today, isnt he supposed to be a starter? Hasn't harang missed the last season and a half because Dusty used him in the bullpen?

    #Reds pitching coach Price on where Chapman will start: "Maybe it’s Cincinnati. Maybe it’s somewhere else in our system."

    Wow!!!

    Fast food!!!

    I guess it's impressive if you're under 14.

    Seriously though, we don't have them here, but the folks down south like em... but their shakes are just as much a calorie monster as their double cheesburger (690 calories)

    Chapman on Chapman
    Posted by jfay February 18th, 2010, 6:07 pm

    It’s been pretty much an all-Aroldis Chapman day. We chatted with him after his first day of camp. Here’s the the highlights. Tony Fossas, the Dayton pitching and Cuban native, interpreted:

    How did the first day go? “I feel really comfortable. I had really good first day out. There are some really good guys to make me feel at home.”

    How important is it to have Ramon Hernandez as your catcher? “One of better things that has happened is to have a catcher who knows Spanish.”

    Bryan Price said you may start in the majors. Is that the goal? “That decision comes only from the top. But I feel I’m very capable and I’ve worked very hard for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to the challenge. I feel I’m more than capable of being a starter in the big leagues for Cincinnati.”

    I like his swagger. Sure beats Paul Wilson on the cover of "Pitch to Contact" magazine.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

    ALL IN: All 29 pitchers and all seven catchers reported and worked out Thursday.

    Left-hander Pedro Viola and right-hander Enerio Del Rosario missed connections out of the Dominican Republic, but arrived.

    WHAT ABOUT LEAKE? Right-handed pitcher Mike Leake, the top pick from last year's June draft, is in camp for the first time.

    But his appearances was overshadowed by Cuban left-hander Aroldis Chapman.

    Leake could be in the major leagues quickly, pitching coach Bryan Price said.

    "I don't think you're sticking your neck out by saying this kid is ready to compete at the higher levels of the minor leagues and challenge to be on a major league team quickly," Price said. "In the same breath, you've got to say: You've got to go out there and do it. There's a lot of guys you build up prematurely. That's unfair to him, a 21-year-old kid who is his first full season of professional baseball.

    "I think he's a very polished kid (who could) pitch his way and force our hand."

    Well thank goodness they cleared that up.

    Fay: "Where's Chapman gonna be?"
    Price: "Somewhere."

    If all five are healthy, you gotta believe chances are pretty good that Bailey, Cueto, Volquez, Chapman and Leake are the 2011 startiing rotation (if not sooner).

    I can't imagine the Reds of all teams going into a season with the vets in the rotation being 25 years old (Volquez will be 27, but Bailey and Cueto will have more MLB experience by the start of 2011 if they stay healthy this season).

    Yeah DD, but with strong seasons from the youngsters, I can't see them bringing back Arroyo or Harang with that type of talent ready - especially with guys like Wood and Klinker in the wings for depth.

    Maybe one of the young guns falter and they bring back Bronson OR Aaron, but their dollars could go along way toward filling a hole in LF or SS - or maybe signing Votto or Bruce.

    I'd like to thank OBM for all the updates, I'm thirsty for Reds News.

    I hope we can keep this thread on topic so the members of RedsZone can appreciate it in the manner OBM intended.
