Chapman made his debut last night with the Reds. Here's vid of his heater mixed with off speed pitches. He's known to touch 105 on the gun at times. He's currently pitching out of the pen, but long term plans are to move him to a starting role. Just as much of an impact pitcher as Stephen Strasburg, but with slight command and control issues that are slowly being ironed out. World Series Closer?

FYI The fastest pitch ever recorded was 104.8 mph by Joel Zumaya on 10-10-2006

I'm not here to judge. I'm just pointing out all of the mistakes you're making.

Slight control issues and throws 100+?

The fastball is nice but that slider is a killer.
