He was in route to pick up his girl friend from the airport. Chapman needs to invest in a new radar detector but when they nail you with the laser as you round a bend, you are cooked. You learn, it is much easier to just slow the hell down, safer too.

Reds GM Walt Jocketty told ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark that he doesn’t mind the constant discussion surrounding Aroldis Chapman’s role. "I like it. It creates interest in our club, and that's all good,” Jocketty said. “Everybody has a theory on it.” The GM says Chapman would like to start, and that the left-hander will remain in the bullpen for the 2012 season. Here are the rest of Stark’s notes and rumors:

Scott Rolen (left shoulder) was eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday, but obviously that did not happen. Rolen does not have a timetable to return.
“He’s slowly progressing,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “He’s working hard in therapy. He’s not going on the road trip. He’s going to stay back and go to the clinic and therapy, trying to get the strength and range of motion back that he had in spring training.”
Todd Frazier has made most of the starts at third base since Rolen went on the DL on May 12, with Miguel Cairo also getting some time.“The guys that have played third are doing a good job, but Scott Rolen is Scott Rolen,” Baker said. “You really appreciate his consistency, dullness and lack of flair because he’s not in there. He makes all the plays.”
The Reds begin a six-game road trip Monday. There will be three games in Pittsburgh, an off-day Thursday, then three games in Houston.
It took him 110 at-bats, but Chris Heisey finally hit his first homer of the season Saturday night. Heisey hit 18 homers last year in only 279 at-bats.“It goes like that sometimes,” Baker said. “And, they’re pitching him differently. They know Heisey has power, and they’re throwing him differently this year than they were last year. Now it’s up to him to make that adjustment back.”
Baker also talked with Heisey about his surprising bunt attempt in Saturday night’s game. With runners at first and third and one out, Heisey attempted a bunt and was easily retired.“He was trying to do something, which is better than trying to do nothing,” Baker said. “That’s the time we wanted to blow the game out. You’re in a situation to drive in runs there.
1986 – The year that Sunday’s Rockies starter Jamie Moyer, now 49, debuted in the majors. It also was the final season as an active player for Reds manager Dusty Baker, now 62.
“I just think April hates me, to be honest with you.” – Reds pitcher Mat Latos, who has a 2-8 lifetime record in April and now 10-3 in May. (This year: 1-2 in April, 3-0 in May).

This is something that frustrates me about Dusty. He has already decided that no matter how the other 3B do (mostly talking about Frazier), Rolen WILL start when he gets back. Look at the stats, Dusty. Sheesh.Dusty is like this far too frequently, too. He tends to stick to these decisions he makes for far too long, ignoring whether they're working or not. His stubbornness drives me nuts.

"nearly everyone but starter Jeff Samardzija is available.""Castro can be obtained for two impact prospects,""Bryan LaHair could provide pop for a contender"Quotes coming from USA Today's Bob Nightengale Would you guys give up a couple of top prospects or more for Castro? What about LaHair? Can he play any left? With Rizzo waiting, you'd think he be moving there anyway.I doubt Theo would deal inter division, but fun to think about.
