    Chapman.....

    You concerned?

    Is he gassed? Pitched too much? Not enough? Complacent? Nothing?

    Not sure myself....but come playoff time he has to be Aroldis.

    If he said he felt tired or a little off I'd agree.....not sure he's not a little complacent. No one ever hits you....after 6 weeks you may lose a little drive/focus....I hope that's part of it.

    I don't know what the deal is. I would guess with the streak gone he will be rested more. Only time will tell.

    Also, the Reds FO needs to let Chapman roll off the mound when needed. It is how he realigns his chi.

    I think it's lack of use. I think Chapman is at his best when he's pitching 2 or 3 days in a row. He hasn't been pitching much at all lately.

    Its been a long season. He's not a machine. Even Mariano blew one once in awhile.

    Lead is still comfortable but this thing is by no means over. Cards are not quitting and the Reds know that. Hope this thing gets clinched before that season ending six game trip.

    Re: Chapman.....

    His velocity/k's have been down his last several outings. That being said, it's still higher than most. His last save opportunity against Philadelphia the guy looked like he got it pretty square but it fell short of the fence. Tonight there were a couple of cheap hits before the HR. I wouldn't worry too much about it, he had a similar stretch at a point in the middle of the season, frustrating loss tonight though.

    Don't think people are worried about blowing a save, it's how he's blowing the save with the significant drop in velocity. THat's what people are concerned about.

    i remember when people thought the problem of his struggles in the past was pitching in consecutive days lol

    but yeah, as Mark Sheldon pointed out, he hasn't pitched since the 4th, and before that, September 2nd and August 28th.
