Marshall - closer, Bray setup, Chapman extra starter in AAA is more valuable than:
Chapman - closer, Marshall setup man, no extra starter in AAA
I'd be amazed if Chapman were named closer.
He hasn't shown the consistency, the ability to pitch on consecutive days, or the control to be a closer.
I can see Chapman setting up. But as closer, I think Marshall is the clearcut choice to replace Madson if he misses time.

Well that would assume that the press would know quicker than cinreds21. That may or may not be the case, certainly there are those in the organization, which cinreds may be in contact with, that would know well in advance of the press.
The non doctor in me wonders if there are clear cut signs that a guy has a torn ligament in his elbow before he gets scoped. He may not need to see Doctor K for some trainers to feel 90% certain he's got a torn ligament of some sort. Speculation, but something like would be spread around the club house faster than the press would know.
The insider has a track record guys, I'm giving him the benefit here. Though I hope he doesn't know what he is talking about here.
