    will chapman make starting rotation?

    Do you think dusty and co. Will do the right thing and let chapman start for the reds this season, based upon his very good spring training? I think bailey should go to the pen.

    While his stats are promising, you can't base everything off of a spring training. He needs to spend some time starting in Louisville before he's ready to start in the show. He needs to show he can consistently pitch 6-7 innings, as well as show he has 3 pitches he can throw for strikes and get people out with.

    The baseball thing to do would be put him in AAA and say come first of May evaluate his starts at that point. If he has games pitched with consistant performance of say at least 6+ innings outings and such...what the Reds will do is mess it up...

    According to Baker the decision will be made tomorrow after Chapmans start. Think he's feeling the pressure?!
