John Fay’s blog has a blurb with Dusty talking about sitting down with Chapman…but this is the part that scares me…
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Latin guys who play winter baseball (are in shape),Ã¢â‚¬Â Baker said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“From talking to Bryan, (Chapman) usually had two weeks off the whole year. This is probably the longest heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been off his whole life.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something to that. When I played Winter Ball, the guys I played with played all year. Very rarely did they have sore arms. I had teammates who ceased having arm problems when they started throwing in the offseason.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Yeah…didn’t bother Volquez at all.
