Aroldis Chapman Disagrees with usage in World Series

Reliever Aroldis Chapman knows he was overused in this past World Series. In games 5-7, a span of four days, Chapman threw an astounding 107 pitches. The eight out save in game 5 was widely heralded as genius, however using him in game 6 when the Cubs were ahead by a wide margin was criticized and deservedly so. Although Chapman voiced his displeasure afterwards, he never told coach Maddon during the playoffs. Chapman knew he would be utilized in this manner and did not complain.

Relievers are more relied upon during the playoffs, something they know going in. Chapman proved how much of a good teammate he was by embracing his role. For his efforts he will forever be a Cubs legend.
