Well, yes, Craig Kimbrel is nasty.
Mike Trout had to face R.A. Dickey in his first at-bat and now Aroldis Chapman. Works the count to 3-2 and draws a walk. Maybe that won't impress the casual fan watching Trout for the first time, but to me it says something that a 20-year-old kid has the makeup to look for his pitch, even down 8-0 against a guy throwing 100 mph.
OK, one inning to go. Thanks for sticking with me this far.
