After the signing with the Yankees, Chapman spoke on a conference call with publications such as the New York Post and stated, “I believed there were a couple times where maybe I shouldn’t have been put in the game and he put me in, so personally I don’t agree with the way he used me. But he is the manager and he had the strategy. My job is to be ready, to be ready to pitch, whatever that is, however many games it is, I need to be ready for that. I need to go in and do my job.’’
A rather civil statement regarding his past performance and acknowledging what he’s getting paid to be in a team.
However, publications are beginning to twist Chapman’s words, accusing Maddon of “abusing” his closer during the postseason run. This is simply not true. Chapman himself stated that it’s his job to be ready and that he accepts it. Even during games, Chapman has repeatedly stated his willingness to do whatever it takes to bring victory to Chicago. Publications should stop spinning words to ruin good relationships between managers and players.

Despite its needlessly amplified and falsely accentuated nature, Chapman’s interview clearly took a toll on Joe Maddon. His rebuttal however, was solely focused on the “abusive” nature of his management during Game 6 of the World Series run. Maddon expressed high praise for Chapman’s work, acknowledging his credit in the Chicago victory, but definitely making clear that every decision he made had Chapman’s consent.
The only difference I could find was in Chapman’s disagreement with Maddon’s strategy, which seems to stem from the conventional definition of a closer. Between Maddon’s ideology of using closers in any dire situation and Chapman’s integrated belief in utilizing closers only in an intensely tight situation.
Chapman’s new manager Joe Giardi will most likely be more alert with the way he uses his closer now after seeing the work of drama-hungry journalists.
