Cashman Pulled Off A Haul
The signing of Chapman was clearly a move endorsed by Hal Steinbrenner. He loved the buzz he created and the flames that lit up Yankee Stadium in the ninth.
However, one must give a ton of credit to Brian Cashman on how he handled getting Chapman in the first place, to now and everything in between.
Obviously, that was because of his alleged domestic violence incident but then Cashman shipped him to Chicago for Rashad Crawford, Billy McKinney, Adam Warren and Gleyber Torres — currently their top infield prospect.
He then became a free agent before signing with the Yankees late Wednesday night.
Say what you want about Cashman but he has put New York in a great position to sustain years of winning with the handling of every deal that has taken place.
