    Aroldis Chapman

    Aroldis Chapman, a Cuban considered by many scouts to be the best left-handed pitching prospect in the world, has defected from the national team, several sources have confirmed to ESPN The Magazine.


    He is 21 yrs old.......Will the Sox "be a player"? IF this story is true, then every MLB team will get to negotiate with him as he will be a free agent. Does Contreras help us get him, or will the $$ be too much for Reinsdorf?

    Conteras is a free agent this winter. I wonder if we have to resign Conteras to get Chapman to sign

    Isn't Cuba part of the Sox farm system?

    How does a Cuban get the last name of Chapman?

    Maybe it's the Americanized version of Chapmanez.

    If I'm Castro, I definitely cut down on that team's road trips.
