Well thats exciting, huh?
When I heard about it, I was excited too. It’s just good to know that the Yankees are willing to spend SOME money this offseason. I mean, look, The Yankees haven’t spent a dime the past two offseasons, so now this shows the Yankees are willing to accelerate.
I’m willing to bet my bottom dollar that the Yankees won’t give Chapman exactly what he wants. 6 years and $100 million was floating around. Looking at the big picture, that may be money that is not inevitable.
Looking at Jansen, I can see the Yankees offering him something along the lines of the Melancon signing ($15.5 M Annually)
Prediction: Chapman Signs with Yankees for $82 Million over 5 Years
