Thirty-six pitches last night, all but four of them fastballs. All 100 mph or faster.

Think Girardi's rooting for rain?

A clean ninth inning, but no save -- and no strikeouts!

Ten pitches, seven for strikes, but only one swing and miss. One.

One slider, the rest fastballs.

On the gun: 100 (the swing and miss), 100, 101, 89 (the slider), 102, 101, 100, 100, 99, 100. Two fly outs, one ground out.

You're losing it, Aroldis.

Surprising they didn't use the hammy to send him on a "rehab" where he could do just that

Another blown save last night.

I think it's time Girardi considers pulling him from the closer role until he rights the ship.

The graphs that go with this Jeff Sullivan piece at Fangraphs seem to tell a story, and it's hard to tell if Sullivan is missing it, disregarding it, or rejecting it. The story is here.

This is what I see from Jeff's graphs:

Chapman's velocity is still strong, though maybe not quite as strong as it used to be. But still, strong.

Chapman's throwing more strikes than he ever has, except for maybe last year.

Batters are making more contact against Chapman than ever since 2013, when he didn't throw as hard.

Is he injured? Less skillful now? Or having some bad luck?

It's hard to discount injury, especially since he's had some rotator cuff stuff this year after that horrific useage at the end of last year. But the velocity suggests to me that he's more or less healthy, just had some bad luck, maybe with hitters adjusting to him being on the plate more of the time. 

Except for Devers, who is just great.

Looked vintage.  Let's see if it lasts.

Needed a mere 19 pitches to toss two clean innings last night against the Rays and pick up the victory. Two pitches put in play, two pitches called strikes, four pitches fouled off, eight pitches swung at and missed. The other three were balls.

Apparently that game against the Cubs will cost him about a month.  He overthrew and hurt his shoulder.

Not showing his bids, but is showing values for Peter's projections.  Seems the reverse of everyone else.

$23 in LABR.

Thanks guys. Now I'm never going to get him from the Bags.
