    Re: More positive reaction on Chapman

    Jamie Ramsey mentioned this on his blog - Imagine a hitter having to face Chapman's 100 mph fastball and then a couple innings later facing Daniel Ray Herrera's 68 mph screwball. Talk about messing your timing up.

    Re: More positive reaction on Chapman

    From C. Trent's twitter:

    Next Chapman day, Friday at Dodgers, and then he'll pitch on the 17th, but not sure which game

    Something kind of odd about watching Aroldis Chapman sitting on the couch watching the Strasburg debut in the #Reds clubhouse

    Strasburg made his debut today... 27 pitches, 15 strikes, 2 ks, 2 hits... topped out at 98... who's better now? HUH!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Re: More positive reaction on Chapman

    Just when I thought Josh Hamilton would be the most fun I'd ever have following a spring training, along comes Aroldis Chapman.

    Incidentally -- it'd be borderline criminal if Chapman and Strasburg don't face one another at some point this year.

    Strasburg. 4 combined innings in spring training isn't going to change that.

    Understood. You have Alonso as a better prospect too.

    Can't wait until May when he's called up.

    Fay - Bryan Price on Chapman:

    “It’s not unrealistic to see (him making the club),” Price said. “But in the same respect, there’s a lot of spring to go. There’s a lot of decisions to be made. I don’t think that decision that’s going to make until we get a lot closer to end, and there’s a lot more involved that performance. But, right now, I hope he forces our hand.

    I am starting to change my stance. I have seen more video on him. We have more reports on him. I have talked to scouts who have seen him in person now.

    You've either changed it or you haven't, right?

    Fay - Jocketty on Chapman's chances

    We cant let one or two outings sway our decisions, Jocketty said. I dont think our position has changed. Were still evaluating. Our plan is the same. Well put him out there every few days and continue to have Bryan (Price) work on things hes work on. Were still trying to address the cultural issues (Chapman) has to deal with. Well see how it goes.
