    When Chapman comes back up, the Reds need to seriously can the whole 'Cuban Missile' and '105' scoreboard graphics crap. That makes the Reds look silly and I think can get in Chapman's head.

    I watched him pitch.

    Throwing strikes, getting swings and mises, not walking guys.

    Hits were all bleeders except one.

    He was fine, you are just looking at the box score which can be very deceiving.

    He had 12 GB's to 1 FB.

    Agreed. Rein in the marketing department.

    Do you realize Pawtucket, who is one of the weaker hitting teams in the league, hit over .300 off Bailey? Homer has been way too hittable and when he is on his game, he is not that hittable.

    Despite this, he's likely starting Sunday for Cincy.

    And it sounds as if he had better defense behind him on the bloop hits and infield hits, everyone would be talking about how good he looked.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
