    HBP, Passed Ball, Wild Pitch, 2 K's, a Walk, a Single, all in one inning and he's given up 1 run.

    That's amazing. I didn't know he hadn't given one up.

    They're finally taking Chapman out w/ the bases loaded and a 5-run lead.

    He threw 34 pitches and could only get 2 outs. He's really wild. His pitches are all over the place.

    Between him and Boxberger, I am not liking this bullpen transition.

    Agreed. Can they just quit it already? He's going to be an MLB starter, let him learn to become one. Instead of just a huge question mark as a reliever.

    He is going to be a starter.

    Johan Santana was used as a Reliever when he started. Many Hall-of-Famers were Relievers their first year in the Majors.

    There's nothing wrong with him spending August and September and October as a Reliever in the Majors.

    It guarantees that he won't be overused, and it gives the REDS more time to work with him during live games. He'd be shut down in 6 weeks if he remained a starter.

    Seems unlikely to me he's going to be any help this year.

    Ridiculous the way they are screwing with Chapman. Look at the guy, he's clearly not ready to pitch in the major leagues in any role. Move him back to starter, leave him alone and hopefully he'll be ready to start 2011 in the rotation.

    There's plenty wrong with it if he's not consistently able to get Major League hitters out. We're in a pennant race.

    Looks like Thompson has another injury...don't know what kind.
    What's new?

    I remember a thread earlier in the year where I got jumped for saying Thompson will never be a factor with the Reds because he's injury prone.

    Voila!

    Another injury. Next time he's healthy they should just package him in a trade as a throw-in. He's never going to make it to the Bigs with us. His time came and went.

    I don't think that is correct.

    Can you name the "many".
