Chapman now leads the NL in Saves even with not having 1 til May 20. Hanrahan had 9 on the day Chapman got his 1st.

Texpope- now we know why yahoo went by batting avg instead of OPS+ because it would have killed their argument.

Yeah - but how did they do against him in day games on natural grass?

BTW - this year Chapman has faced Ryan Braun 3 times ... with 3 strikeouts. Carlos Beltran? 0-2 with 1 K. CarGo? 0-1 with 1 K.

Let's see ... Braun, Beltran, and CarGo are 0-6 with 5 strikeouts? And I'm supposed to be worried because Posey is 1-1 against him?

Sez this ..

Chapman has acquired his impressive numbers by dominating mediocre hitters, but he has been quite below average when he has faced the best hitters in each league. He has faced six of the National League's top ten hitters (Andrew McCutchen, David Wright, Yadier Molina, Matt Holliday, Buster Posey, Jose Altuveo), who are 2-5 with two bases on balls against him.

Chapman's numbers against the American League's top hitters are even worse. He has faced four of them (Joe Mauer, Miguel Cabrera, Robinson Cano, Austin Jackson), and they are 2-3 with one walk against him. All in all, Chapman has faced ten of the top hitters in both leagues, and they have hit .500 with three walks. In other words, he managed to retire just four of the ten hitters.

... hmmm ... that's some sweet cherry pickin' if you ask me :-)

He will get some support (as he should) but is he even the best closer in the NL? There is this kid in Atlanta named Kimbrel who is enjoying an equally great year. For a closer to win the Cy he not only has to post outstanding numbers but also has to be heads above the rest of his peers and that hasn't happened this year. Kimbrel and Chapman will likely split the closer votes with the odds of either one winning very small. Two great closers both having brilliant campaigns isn't imo a recipe for Cy Young success.

He's a candidate, but keep in mind that he has 35% of the innings that Cueto/Dickey have. His candidacy should be kept in perspective.

Candidate, yes; but if Cueto or Dickey get to 20 wins his chances of winning are slim IMO.

Has as many K's as Jered Weaver....in 81 less innings

Is it time we start considering Chapman as a Cy Young candidate?
