    It's legit...it's documented online all over the place. However, I've never heard or seen him clocked at 107 in a game.

    This was a during a spring training game I attended in Lakeland, Florida in March of 2007. It was on a stadium speed display on the outfield board.

    From Baseball America:

    What was more important for the Reds was Chapman's command. He retired the side on 14 pitches, 11 of them were strikes. Since July 10, Chapman has thrown 66 percent strikes. Over those 20 games, Chapman is 4-0, 0.83 with eight saves in eight opportunities. He's allowed 10 hits and seven walks over those 21 2/3 innings with 35 strikeouts. He's struck out 42 percent of the batters he's faced over the past month and a half.

    And left-handed. And he may end up being able to start.
    "He looked like a surfer kid from SoCal," manager Dusty Baker says. "He didn't say much, but you could tell he was cool."
