Chance Chapman/2010 Season....

Recommended Posts

theeagleman5

Good news bad news..... the bad news is Chappy gave up a 3 run HR in last night's game at Erie, PA but the Phillies scored 8 runs in the next inning to give Chance his first win of the season 12-9, which is the good news....he also struck out 2 and gave up a walk in one inning of work....Chapman's record evens at 1-1 but his ERA is up to 6.59.....he needs to really pick it up during the last 6 weeks of the season....rumors have the big league Phillies close to a trade for Houston's ace Ray Oswalt.....the Phils would be giving up pitcher J.A. Happ and prospects....maybe one of them will be Chance Chapman....could he be headed to the Astros?.... :sweat:

Well....no trade for Chance Chapman this week and some good news on the field last night as Chance had one of his best outings in a 7-6 Reading win vs. Akron.....the Phils' starter got bombed early and Chance come on to hold the fort with 3.1 innings of shutout ball....he gave up only 1 hit and had 4 Ks.....dropped his ERA down to 5.60 and Readng came from behind to win in the 9th on a walk off hit....they have now won 5 of 6 games this week and are on a roll....let's hope that Chappy keeps this up and finishes the season strong.... :)

Chance pitched two more scoreless innings in a 15-7 Reading Phillies win at Richmond last Wednesday night....dropping his ERA to 5.10......he needs more nights like that between now and the end of the season.... :)

Chance got banged around in the 9th yesterday for 2 runs and 3 hits in mop up duty of an 11-3 Reading win....his ERA back up to 5.49.....Chapman isn't having a very good year....really inconsistant....this can't bode well for his future at 26 yrs old.... :(

oh boy....Chance gives up a 9th inning HR in the top of the 9th inning last night and takes the loss against Trenton, 5-4....Chapman had pitched a scoreless top of the 8th inning and recorded 3 Ks and then Reading scored 4 in the home half to tie the game at 4 all....but couldn't hold the Thunder in the 9th....he is now 1-2 with a 5.46 ERA....ouch!.... :worried:

Chance pitched 3 innings in relief of the starter in an 8-4 Reading loss at Erie last night....he gave up 3 hits and 1 run....no walks and 2 Ks....ERA down to 5.23 after this one....not a bad performance for Chappy but the R-Phillies are not doing well this season...have had several of their best players called up to AAA in the past 2 months including ace Vance Worley and star OF Domonic Brown who is actually up with the big Phillies now and 1B Mike Rizzotti....they won't be making the playoffs this year....not sure what next year will bode for Chapman....this is his 4th season as a pro and he's only in AA and not having a great year.....if he can finish strong, maybe he still gets a shot at Triple-A next year.... :worried:

Chapman had two strong outings for Reading this week....last Wednesday night he came on in early relief when the starter got bombed and was on the mound when Reading took the lead back in a 7-6 win....Chance went 2.2 scoreless innings giving up just one hit and striking out a pair....the win evened his record at 2-2....then last night Chappy pitched two more scoreless innings with 3 Ks in an 11-9 Phillies loss....this drops his ERA down to 4.58..... :)

Another not so good outing for Chance on Thursday night in a 15-10 Reading loss vs. Akron....Chapman came in to relieve the starter who got bombed and gave up 4 hits and 3 runs in 2 2/3 innings of work....his ERA ballons up to 4.95 and his record remains at 2-2.... :(

Not such bad outing for Chance last night is a 6-4 Phillies win at Richmond........Chapman came in for the starter and went 3 innings giving up one hit and one lone run...his ERA drops to 4.81.... :)

Chapman threw a scoreless inning in relief of the starter as Reading beat the Binghamton Mets last night by 9-1...Chance allowed no baserunners and had one K....he is still 2-2 and ERA drops to 4.70.... :)

Chapman started on Sunday and went 3 2/3 innings giving up 4 hits and 2 runs in a 4-2 loss vs the Binghamton Mets...Chance was not involved in the decision and his ERA is now 4.72....we are now heading into the last week of the season... :geek:

Chapman started for Reading yesterday and got pounded for 5 runs and 5 hits in 2.2 innings of work in the Phillies 11-2 loss at Altoona....not a good finish to the season for Chance....he took the loss and will end with a 2-3 record and a poor ERA of 5.36....not sure what next season will bode for Chapman....he started off the year decent but never seemed to get back on track after he missed a month in May-June with that oblique strain.....let's hope that 2011 is a better season.... :worried:

Chance Chapman finished his season at the AA Reading Phillies with a 2-3 record and an ERA of 5.36...most of his 50.1 innings were in relief but he did start 3 games near the end of the season....he had 22 walks and 37 Ks....he just never got it going this season after he missed over a month in injury in May-June....hopefully, Chance will have a better year in 2011....not sure if he is eligible for the Rule 5 draft yet but even if so...it's unlikely he would be picked because a team selecting a player has to leave him on the big league roster all season or return the player to the old team for $25,000.....TheEagleman will keep an eye on what happens to Chappy.... ;)

I like your optimism, Irish and hope you are right about Chance....while highly unlikely...TheEagleman would love to see a Phillies 2011 rotation of Halladay, Hamels, Oswalt, Blanton and Chapman..... ;)

Chance is still on the roster for the AA Reading Phillies....hope he can move up to AAA Lehigh Valley this season....if not, TheEagleman will be headed to see him play when Reading visits Trenton in May... :ugeek:
