    The game of baseball in and of it's self is very fickle, as are most fans of the sport.

    Better than Arthur Rhodes so far this season and a hell of a lot cheaper.

    It just goes back to the fact that relief pitching is very volatile and very often over rated.

    I really think Chapman may be hurt. His velocity isn't the same and his pitches are just all over the place. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go on the DL by Friday and bring up Arrendondo.
    Gomes needs to sit. He can't hit his way out of a phone booth. Dusty needs to play Lewis or Heisey in LF for the forseeable future.
    Great two starts by Homer. He's proved he can pitch against the Astros now lets see what he can do against the rest of the NL. I think he will do just fine.

    I don't understand what makes Chapman so special that the minors are not an option. It certainly should be an option. Right now he's dead space on an increasingly tight roster
