I know that he has the record for the fastest pitch ever, but there is an hilarious stat that I found (but now cannot find again) once showing the 20 or so fastest pitches since 2000. I think Chapman had all but 2.

Has there ever been another pitcher who was this much ahead of the rest of the league? In other words, has there been a pitcher who's fastball was so consistently much faster than anyone else's?

Also - without this type of speed, would he still be a talented closer ( not like say Matt Anderson or Steve Dalowski )?
