Why Dodgers Should Trade for Chapman

In his capacity as an Editorial Writer for DodgersNation.com, California Sports Lawyer, Jeremy Evans, has written an article about the "on hold" trade for Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman.

"Should we be worried about Jansen’s feelings? Jansen is a professional. He can handle it. We are talking about a man who is a converted catcher that has become one of the games top closers. He has battled through heart problems, while adjusting to American culture as a professional athlete. We should not be concerned about his feelings at this time. Furthermore, Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts will be fine in “managing” personalities . . .

Domestic violence is serious business. So is shooting your own garage ceiling. Dusty Baker, who managed Chapman in Cincinnati, but is currently with the Washington Nationals as their Manager, praised Chapman stating the he is “a heck of a guy” and that he does not believe reports . . .

Despite their similar and traditional “closer” titles, we know Friedman has looked at the numbers and even those whom loathe advanced statistics have to appreciate the utter dominance these two would bring to the table."
