    Send Chapman down!!!

    He needs to be in he rotation and can only learn to to that in 3A. The Reds don't seem like they want to be competitive this year so use it as a learning experience.

    He is one hell of an expensive 7th or 8th inning specialist. He needs to start once he has command. A year in the pen is a wasted year. He needs to learn to start.

    Trust you? Who are you ...baseball player developer? Why should we trust you. If you were to say it is your opinion I can respect that. Just don't say trust you then don't give us a good reason.

    He is not that expensive. He would be an even more expensive #5 guy walking 6 a night.

    Pitching to Major League hitters is a wasted year?

    I was in the camp that wanted to make him the Closer when Cordero is gone. But with Chapman's declining velocity issues pitching consecutive days, I'm leaning back to making him an eventual starter.

    I'm fine sending him down and making him a starter. Then maybe we can use one of our other starters in trade to fill some other holes.

    If it isn't broken, don't fix it. Trust me, Dusty knows what he is doing.

    No wonder they lost again.

    He will be the closer next year or sooner if they can trade Coco


    He knows how to start, that is all he did for Cuba. All he needs to do, is to be stretched back out if they want him as a starter
