Dodgers Rumors: Team in Talks To Acquire Aroldis Chapman

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

With Zack Greinke gone, the focus shifts to not only replacing what he brought as a starter, but trying to improve the team in his absence.

In a way, baseball has shifted from the days when a couple aces dominate a series (think Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson). Yes they are obviously extremely valuable to have, but it’s also worth noting the Dodgers have had that luxury and failed even make a World Series — let alone win one — with Greinke and Clayton Kershaw.

So, rumor that the team is in talks with the Cincinnati Reds to acquire Aroldis Chapman, the hardest throwing pitcher in the MLB and one of the least hittable pitcher in recent memory, makes perfect sense.

A one-two punch of Chapman and Kenley Jansen in the bullpen would be incredible. Absolutely. Incredible.

While the offseason isn’t off to a great start, this kind of move (obviously depending on what the Dodgers would have to give up) would get the ship sailing in the right direction again.
