Aroldis Chapman update: This time it’s really over.

Early last week, the Blue Jays somewhat surprisingly admitted to having some interest in Aroldis Chapman. A few days later, Toronto had reportedly made a $23-million offer to the Cuban defector and were, along with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim California U.S.A., considering to be the front runners for his services.

Then, earlier today, the Cincinnati Reds came out of nowhere (or nowhere that I was paying attention to) and signed the fireballing lefty to a 5-year, $30-million contract.

While this should be a disappointment to Jays fans, we can take solace in the fact that management was even considering spending this much cash on a largely unproven talent. That can only mean good things for the team’s (re)building.
