At this point, none of us know where any of the top free agents are going. If we’re being honest, I thought a few would already be signed by now. There are literally 10 teams in the mix for the top 3 closers and their asking prices are not getting low any time soon.
The Yankees have made it clear that they would love to re-sign Aroldis Chapman, who they traded at the deadline in return for Gleyber Torres, who recently won the AFL MVP.
Chapman released the following statement:
“I would love to be a Yankee again. This is a business, and the Yankees know that. They took a chance on me, and I will always be grateful. The organization treated me first class. And the fans were like no other.”
Yankees fans love the sound of that.
