I want that Signature Series Aroldis Chapman so bad!

SDS

That card looks unreal. I think it's actually a cheat code. I looked up the definition of "humiliate" and it just showed me a picture of that card.

No, but lets get serious for a minute... Maxed out H/9, K/9, HR/9, "Clutch," velocity, and break. He's left-handed. His delivery is deceptive and silky smooth. He has a sinker and he even has a frickin' changeup, are you kidding me? Oh, and if you're still not impressed he has Outlier 1 on his four-seamer and Outlier 2 on his sinker.

I imagine bringing him out of your pen would get a lot of disconnects/quits.

I honestly don't know if I can wait for his price to come down. That's end-game. That's the best relief pitcher we'll see all year, in my opinion.

SDS

Pulled two elite tiers, used him for an inning sold him. He's fine, but he's not 180K fine.

SDS

Calm down. Take a breath. Count to 10.

SDS

He'll just throw it down the middle with a little more velocity and a little more break

SDS

I will buy him, because I want all Reds cards, however it means i will probably never have Mantle.

SDS

He had an immaculate inning against me yesterday, granted I kinda suck, but he was legit!

SDS

I knee [censored] bought for 160k and just sold earlier today. I want him back, however I know as soon as even Friday there will be DOTP packs available in the next program and when they likely add another player to each tier, I’m sure he’ll be down considerably.

SDS

Kenley Jansen from last year is the best market comparison. That card held value for a long time.

SDS

I bit the bullet just now, 187k. Ouch

SDS

I honestly don’t think he’s nearly worth the upgrade over his 85. One of that cards strengths was that his 2 seamer was a more effective changeup. The the 125 k/9 and h/9 is nice, but it’s not a massive upgrade over the 85. All of his fastballs are pretty much the same speed, and you can sit either offspeed or fast. He’s one of the best relievers in the game for sure, but I don’t think he’s worth the upgrade.

SDS

I used him in BR. I went Brusdar and Chapman and won 12-1 for the first time this year. They both did work but Chapman was really good. I would buy his card if I could but trying to grind collections

SDS

You guys calmed me down enough to not impulsively buy him. Instead I'm trying out the new Manny Machado.

...but man, when this card is around 100-120K, he's mine!

SDS

i packed him yesterday and sold him because i want mantle and still need scherzer, arenado, degrom and bellinger

SDS

His sinker/changeup combo is nasty! Throw in the slider and its lights out. Granted I sold him, but once I'm able to finish LS collections I'll be getting him back.

Feel your pain bro, the Reds card art just makes it that much more tempting too

SDS

If u have patience then wait til his price drops. There will he more of him pulled when they release more packs down the line. I for one am not paying that for him. I have his LS and do just fine. Im not gonna spend that much on a reliever. That being said i say u just wait.

Get Mantle, FAR more valuable than one closer.
