Chapman faster than his cars
Posted on: September 3, 2010 7:52 pm
Aroldis Chapman should just buy a new car for every pitch speed milestone he hits.
The Cuban sensation has a Lamborghini with the vanity license plate MPH102 and a Mercedes with the plate 101MPH. Send them to the scrap heap, because they're out of date after the 22-year-old left-hander clocked 103.9 mph in a relief appearance Wednesday. Chapman signed for over $30 million, so he's got plenty of money to replace them.
“I just texted his advisor,” Tomas Vera, trainer at Triple-A Louisville, told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “He’s going to see if he can get 104MPH and 105MPH.”
