YANKS MAY RESIGN CHAPMAN AFTER ALL
This is a nugget, and only a nugget and it comes from Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo who does it better than anyone.
Of course, there has been a ton of talk about the Yankees becoming sellers by the quickly approaching trading deadline and part of that is because there is a true lack of consistency with the team and winning isn't always there.
Names like Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman have been mentioned alot. But Cafardo plants this nugget in the middle of his piece...
"The Yankees are working their way back into the race, so trading Chapman isn’t in the cards at the moment. Chapman can be a free agent after the season and the Yankees have been impressed with the flame-throwing lefthander and may try to re-sign him. The Yankees believe in their three-headed monster at the end of games and have no reason to break it up now."
Now look, it kind of makes sense and I gotta tell you, not only are the 3 of them a terrific bullpen bridge, the marketing of these guys for the Yankees future will prove outstanding.
I've never heard this nugget, until now... and I wanted to bring it to your attention. Do what it what you'd like. I did find it interesting however!
