Let’s face it: trading Gleyber Torres (among others) for Aroldis Chapman was worth it because flags fly forever. But now, Torres is knocking on the door, and the Cubs don’t get to answer it. Instead – the Yankees do.

Raise your hand if you enjoyed watching the Chicago Cubs win the World Series.

Now, keep your hand up if you think the Cubs could have gotten to the World Series, much less win the World Series without the services of the one and only Aroldis Chapman (his freaking nickname is the “Cuban Missile” guys!).

If your hand is still in the air, I couldn’t agree less with you.

Acquiring Chapman, despite allegations (which led to a suspension) of a certain domestic violence incident, was the exactly what the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs (!!!) needed. The bullpen was all but in shambles and his presence lifted the club to a 103 win season.
