    I agree, time to let Chapman start.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    I bet the Twins stick with the guy who's pitched well all day.

    Chapman has now given up 8 earned runs in his last 6 innings pitched.

    I was there with you. Everyone is so impresses by his speed that they fail to see he's not cut out to be a closer. Bad coaching call at third and poor decision by the manager. Can't blame this team. They fought back only for the brain trust to fail them.

    Chapman just wanted a win rather than a save I guess.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Actually, I agree with the other poster. Players have figured out how to time his fastball. That's very evident recently. Until he starts to work in more offspeed pitches, he's likely to continue getting hammered.

    You can throw a fastball in a good location and it will succeed.

    Chapman grooved it.

    Telling you, these guys get three balls on the hitter and they panic that a walk might happen.

    Latos too. He has four walks in the last month. Only four. Yet he's allowed ten homers because his objective is avoiding walks.

    A walk is one base. It is not the end of the world. Can't groove pitches to good hitters.

    It's called not giving in.

    This is getting ridiculous. He's obviously struggling right now. Use Marshall until he gets right. It was supposed to be committee based remember?
