Thanks Cat.

Chapman has been impressive at AAA thus far, but it looks like he is getting minor league hitters to swing at bad pitches. He's going to need to get him command down or else he'll walk far too many hitters in the bigs.

Yeah, walking 10 batters in 15 innings won't fly in the majors.

CK! :wavey: Where you been?

Going to my boss's house with my office (all 9 dudes) for a BBQ, then baseball game. Everyone's gonna get drunk, but gotta be careful drinking with co-workers. One whipped dude is bringing his girlfriend to this guy's outing. I mean, really, dude?

I guess we know who is not going to have a good time and will be leaving by the 6th inning.

*whispers* why should women drive, there's no road between the kitchen and the bedroom.

No I don't actually feel that way.

And, by the way, Chapman has the stuff to get major-leaguers to swing at bad pitches, too. Its called being "effectively wild". Lots of pitchers have made quite a living with that.

Thank you sir. I can't wait.

As for Chapman, I agree. But I saw him pitch. These guys were swing at pitches at or above eye-level. Guys in the bigs won't chase those.

Still, he's very close. If he can get the mechanics down for his change-up, he'll be an all-star by next year.
