    It's time to trade Chapman

    For whatever reason the Reds just have no real "plan" for this kid and with how well he is looking right now, I would look into seeing what kind of return they can get and move this kid NOW. Paired up with maybe a young player we might be able to add some bench depth or even maybe a quality LF with a bat...but keeping Chapman on the roster is just a waste...

    Not at all. You have 30 million tied up into a player that pitched something like 60 innings last year in a set up role and has what like 6 or so innings pitched so far this year. That is just not worth the monies. If he is not going to start and be used, then use him to get you something that will be used. I would much rather see him in the rotation, but that is never going to happen as there will always be someone missing from the pen requiring Chapman to sit down there and pitch every 3rd day at best for an inning maybe two. Waste and we could be better suited by trading him.

    Chapman is in the Bullpen because they don't wanna part ways with Bailey Period!!! You don't trade a bonifide pitcher for Bench warmers if you wanna win a world series..hold tight until Bailey blows it

    Didn't say bench warmers, I would expect a starting player of quality. I wouldn't give him away but I would be shopping him.

    So Bailey blows it, they won't put Chapman in his spot, they will call up Francis. Dusty has shown he doesn't feel Chapman is starter materail.

    Please stop with the overreactions. Aroldis can only give us 5 innings right now anyway. Be patient. He'll be in the rotation soon enough.

    What overreaction? Chapman has been with the Reds now since 2010, and he has pitched how much? We just played the defending champs and he got into how many of those games and pitched? Exactly what is the point of having that talent if you are just going to let it throw 8 pitches here, 12 pitches there and then nothing for days? You don't see it as a waste?

    I mean come on if Dusty isn't going to use him, then why not get a player who dusty would use and help the team?
