Chapman is too exciting not to see some action in this game, despite the fact that he missed a decent chunk of the season.  The man could strike out Brad Pitt at a spinsters society meeting, and he can make any of the AL players, whiff, too.  Barring a need for him earlier in the game, Matheny should call on Chapman and his 100+ heater in the ninth.

Prediction:  Will close the game, save situation or not.   Strikes out the side to end the game.
