Yankees Adjusting Old Model
The New York Yankees got their man in the 28-year old left handed closer Aroldis Chapman, and all it cost them was money. The Yankees gave the free agent Chapman a five year contract for $86 million dollars, but what is key is that they did not have to part ways with any other players. For the Bronx Bombers it's not about spending the money, because lord knows they have plenty of that. It’s all about not wanting to part ways with any of their promising young prospects. Patience. That’s the new model for the Yankees. Let’s see if it works.
