    What Do You Think of Aroldis Chapman Right Now?

    DO NOT RESEARCH STATS FOR THE POLL. IF YOU DO SO, I WILL PERSONALLY FIND OUT WHERE YOU LIVE AND ANNIHILATE YOU.
    You probably don't have to look at the numbers to realize that Chapman's having an impressive July. But without looking at the numbers, how good of a season do you think he's having? What do you expect from him moving forward?

    He's been crazy dominant since that control blip a while back. I'd expect that to continue into the closer's role next year unless the Reds decide to make him a starter. If that happens, then it's anyone's guess.

    28 innings. What a great use of his talent!

    I already knew the answer because he is on my fantasy team. I think a lot of people will be surprised with the answer. Going forward I am torn between using Chapman as a closer or moving him to the rotation. Either way he has immense value.

    I hope the Reds don't trade him.. I wouldn't give him up for any pitcher; not Hallady, Lee, Hernandez

    He'd likely have more if he didn't fail horribly at his job for a while there.

    Re: What Do You Think of Aroldis Chapman Right Now?

    The answer is 9 hits. I looked it up a couple days ago. He's been flat out dominant since returning from the minors. Really, he's been dominant all season except for that four game stretch where he couldn't find the plate with a GPS. Hopefully the Reds are smart enough to understand he should be starting next season, though I'm not holding my breath.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    His HR to Pujols was a bad call by Hernandez. Just sayin'.

    I'll bet you guys he's going to stay in the bullpen - probably as the closer.

    Pretty obvious to everybody but the FO that you want a guy like this throwing 200 innings rather than 28.
