Cubs Trade Could Be BEST Move EVER
Could this be the Cubs' year? Seems like it as they are the best team in Major League Baseball right now, AND they just got better. This Cubs trade could be the BEST move for them this postseason.
Baseball’s best team, the Chicago Cubs, just got better, acquiring closer Aroldis Chapman, the hardest thrower in the sport’s history, from the Yankees in exchange for 19-year-old shortstop Gleyber Torres and three other minor leaguers. The 28-year-old Chapman, who’s hit 105 miles per hour on the radar gun, had 20 saves for the Yankees after serving a 30-game domestic violence suspension to start the season. While the Cubs gave up a lot to get Chapman, who will be a free agent after this season, they filled the only real void on their big-league roster in doing so, leaving the organization well positioned to win its first World Series since 1908.
