Our buddy Joe Posnanski (author of 2009’s must-read book, The Machine) had a chance to see Aroldis Chapman up close and personal yesterday. He wrote about it for SI, and you really want to click that link and read the piece. Let’s just say Poz was impressed.

And then: You watch Chapman pitch.

Holy cow, indeed.

(While we’re on the subject, sorta, go listen to the Redleg Nation Radio interview with Poz, if you haven’t listened yet. Or even if you have already listened, download it again. What are you doing right now? You aren’t too busy to listen to me! C’mon, what kind of a devoted fan are you?)
