ok, see you
But 5 years?
No trade is only to CA I thought, he has an opt out in 3 years. Chapman is still young so should be ok for the duration.
He'll be 33 at the end, fastball relievers tend to fall off around 30, and that's if his Cuban age is accurate.
I don't think it's a bad signing, god knows the Yankees have the money, but I wonder how much they were bidding against themselves.
At least they didn't have to go to $100 million like was first reported.
