Trade For Aroldis Chapman Could Come This Weekend

27-Year Old Aroldis Chapman
By the time Tom Brady and the Patriots have finished smiting the "G-Men" from Gotham City, the Red Sox may have a closer of the future in the fold. This past Wednesday, FenwayNation posted a story that Aroldis Chapman (and possibly OF Jay Bruce) would come to Boston in a trade for one of the team's three young outfielders. Now, multiple sources (including Hall-Of-Fame writer Peter Gammons) are saying that such a deal could come before the end of this weekend—with Jackie Bradley, Jr. (and more) the likely price The Carmine Hose will have to pay. Chapman—the fireballing lefty closer—is a free agent after 2016, so it's likely that Dave Dombrowski would have to ink him long-term to justify the sacrifice of a player like Bradley. Definitely stay tuned!
