Hobby notices big time. His cards went up significantly last year during the regular season and all the Cy Young talk.

I respect Kimbrel but would guess a decent amount of managers would go with Chapman.

Just have to ask - Why? Kimbrel has been a stud since he got into the league.

If any manager would choose Chapman over Kimbrel they would be a complete idiot.

Craig Kimbrel and Chapman have pitched almost the same innings pitched (Kimbrel about 26 IP more) and Kimbrel is better in every single category...

Chapman career ERA 2.21 < Kimbrel career ERA 1.40
Chapman career WHIP 1.00 < Kimbrel career WHIP 0.90
Chapman K per IP 1.58 < Kimbrel K per IP 1.74
Chapman K/BB 3.17 < Kimbrel K/BB 4.58
Chapman SV% 84 (42/50) < Kimbrel SV% 90 (96/107)
Chapman opponents avg .148 < Kimbrel opponents avg .147

Another year, another all star game for Aroldis Chapman!

One could make the argument that Rivera is still better than both of these guys... Even in 2013 at 85 years old.

2 men on base, 2 outs, 1 run game.. No Problem, Chapman with the 102mph heater to end the inning and earn the save.
