Chapman as a starter, fine. Make everyone a starter. Starting depth is great.
Your bullpen is maybe Cordero, a free agent. Masset, Bray, and Ondrusek each of whom struggled in the second half. Masset has struggled a lot in the last two years. Arredondo.
That's about it.
I hope Walt is focusing on the bullpen. There is a severe shortage there. It will not just fall into place.
I think many people forget that Chapman was a stud starting pitcher in Cuba. We tend to view him like a top draft pick out of high school who needs to learn the game.
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
Chapman threw an inning today with a walk and a strikeout.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Hope it's not serious.m_sheldon Mark Sheldon
Heard Chapman did not make AFL start today because of arm soreness. Will update when I know more. #reds
Not something you want to see.

Chapman was scratched from today's start in Ariz w/ shoulder stiffness. Jocketty says it's not serious. Chapman may throw next week #reds
