    Good. Let them play that game. The Reds will play baseball.

    Sounds good. I'd hate for anything major to come from it. Hopefully whoever wears one will take it in stride and that will be that.

    And that's why I'm throwing a 100 MPH fastball at your head/shoulders in a 3-0 game in the ninth inning? Frivolous. That's why the best hitters are always getting hBP in the 9th inning. Have to keep sending those messages.

    The guy throws 100. If he wants to buzz/brush/hit a guy, that's the speed it's going to be. He's not going to throw a slider. You can keep pretending that the game was in doubt if you want to, but it wasn't. That was as good a situation to throw that pitch as you could ask for if you're Chapman.

    No Votto, no Phillips, no Bruce, no amount of Cincinnati chili large enough to feed Jonathon Broxton, no problem.

    Oh well, whatever. Great win. Take one of the next two and this was a successful series.

    Uh.....let's make a list of all the pitchers that have pinpoint control and throw 102 mph. I'll start




































    Ok, couldn't muster up any names. He was throwing it hard and in and it missed....but missed where it was supposed to, not over the plate.

    Chapman had zero reason to hit him there.
