The New York Daily News has a great nugget about something we have been talking about for weeks here on Bleeding Yankee Blue.  They really, really, really want Aroldis Chapman back.  And you know what? I would love to have Chapman back as the Yankees closer next season.  Apparently Brian Cashman is already making his move:

Cashman said Monday that he has reached out to Chapman’s agent — along with the agents for several other free agents — as the baseball offseason kicked off with the start of the general managers’ meetings.

Cashman appears focused on pitching above all else this winter, both in the starting rotation and in the bullpen. Chapman, Kenley Jansen and Mark Melancon are the top relievers on the free-agent market, while Rich Hill, Bartolo Colon and Ivan Nova are among the best starters available.

‘There are certainly some names out there that are pretty good,’ Cashman said. ‘It’s probably a thin starting pitching market, there are a number of different relievers in the market; certainly more relievers in this free agency than there are starters of quality. The trade route is obviously an area we’ll see what develops over time.’”

I always hate when the Yankees are that opened about who they are going after because obvious you worry about rival division teams cock blocking the Yanks. Plus, when it comes to this signing, you gotta worry if the Cubs will try and have Chapman come back too.  Whatever the case, we will have to see. No question this is an interesting one, and I don’t want to see the Yankees lose this!

Stay tuned…
