    I thought Walt had said the plan was to send Chapman to the AFL to get him some more innings and help the transition back to starter next season.

    He could simply have meant Arizona Instructional League.

    Thanks for the update. Is he feeling back to normal after all the issues and injuries?
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    He felt great all year and is happy to put everything behind him. He had a pretty good year and is hoping to start next season in great shape. Who knows, he may get a shot.

    He'll never be a big "stuff" guy, but he's a good kid and a very good athlete that knows how to pitch. He gets a high percentage of ground balls, so maybe his route is a middle reliever, situational guy, I don't know. He's more than willing to do whatever it is the Reds, or another team, ask of him.

    I'm proud of him no matter what, that's for sure.

    I think he could have a good future in relief, especially if he stays with the Reds. That groundball rate is getting it done and in the bullpen he could probably add a tick or two on his FB.

    I've never been to the AFL

    However, I did hear last year, that when DB was manager that some parents got mad because they could easily hear what was going on the field and they got mad because they could hear DB saying some choice words to the umpire.
