I would not be able to catch them fastballs...id die. I would not even bat against him.
Star of the Game:
With all due respect to JC for a big time effort:
And The #1 star of the game:
Chapman is flat out unhittable. I haven't seen him even throw the breaking ball in 4 outings. He's just blowing hitters away with the fastball.
He has his moments where he walks guys but not very often.
He's like Steve Nebraska. I loved that movie.
He's Jimi Hendrix reincarnated as a baseball player.
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
I dunno for sure, but we may be looking at history in the making.
Lowest BAA, WHIP ever?
I never thought we'd see a repeatable delivery from him.
Kudos to whoever helped him work the kinks out.

The most amazing thing is the body language on the hitters, its like I must look when I go to the dentist.
Lets enjoy this as long as it lasts.
I finally figured it out. Chapman is like Secretariat in the Belmont.
Secretariat was so far ahead that when the second-place horse finished he thought he won. Secretariat was already back in the barn. LOL. Okay, a little hyperbole never hurt anyone.
