Aroldis Chapman's ownership too high

It was almost a bit painful to watch Cincinnati Reds left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitch Tuesday night. Then again, he wasn't really pitching, but rather throwing his intriguing fastballs and having no clue where the ball was going. That wasn't at all fun to see, because this guy is really, really good. Chapman walked three of the four hitters he faced and hit the other one, the scary Matt Downs. In his past three appearances, two of which he hasn't retired any hitters and covering one full inning (three outs), Chapman has issued eight walks. In his past two outings, he's thrown 33 pitches, 10 for strikes.
