The baseball season is young, but there is still plenty of talk amongst "baseball people" about who the best teams and players in baseball are. David Schoenfield of ESPN.com put out his list, ranking Major League Baseball's current closers today and it's no surprise that the Reds Aroldis Chapman is very near to the top. In fact, he comes in at number two behind Atlanta's Craig Kilborn Kimbrel and just in front of the legendary Mariano Rivera.
Here's what Schoenfield had to say about Chapman:

Despite the offenseive show that the Reds have been putting on so far this season, last night’s game was a pitcher’s duel that the Cardinals won, 1-5. Bronson Arroyo had a perfect game going into the sixth, but suddenly he hit the wall and gave up 4 runs. Pinch hitter Matt Adams topped that scoring off with a home run. In the game wrap on Reds.com, Adams had this to...

(AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds are on a tear at the plate, and the St. Louis Cardinals got a first-hand look in their home opener - especially in the ninth inning.
Shin-Soo Choo, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce look to continue their hot hitting Tuesday night when the Reds try to win the first two games of a series at Busch Stadium for the first time in almost seven years.
For anybody who believes that over the years we have become a more crass, less refined and an increasingly boorish group of fans who attend MLB games at baseball parks, think again.
