FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YANKS ACQUIRE AROLDIS CHAPMAN FROM REDS

Despite some major off-the-field concerns, the New York Yankees acquired All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman from the Cincinnati Reds.  No word yet on what the return package will be for the Reds. 

Analysis:  Wow.  The Yanks are taking a major risk here as Chapman could be suspended by Major League Baseball due to reportedly firing a gun in a domestic dispute with his wife but apparently they feel good enough to move forward.  Chapman figures to move right into the ninth inning for the Yanks, displacing another top tier closer in Andrew Miller and pushing Dellin Betances into the seventh inning.  Needless to say, the Yanks will then have the best 7-8-9 trio in history.

  1. What a move indeed. If one chooses to ignore his personal problems, the prospect of having Chapman on their team is incredible for the Yanks. Ever since I read an article on http://www.fantasysportsdaily.com where they place him among the top 5 pitchers for the season, I've been picking him for my lineup.
