    The A’s are looking to rebuild and trading 3 of their top 4 trade chips would get them quite the haul. For the Yankees, they could use some starting pitching (Bassitt) and they could put Chapman at SS, which has been reported as an option. For the Braves, if they lose Freddie Freeman, Olson would be a good fallback guy. The A’s would be getting 4 top-tier prospects (Gil, Dominguez, Waters, Langeliers) and Cabrera is a mid-level prospect. I get it’s a stretch for the Yankees to give up Dominguez, or the Braves to give up Waters and Langeliers, but this Could work. Thoughts?


    I think this is a no from the Yankees perspective. So much of Chapman’s value is tied to his defense, which likely doesn’t fully translate if he shifts to SS. Not to say he can’t play SS, but I don’t see Chapman as the top option for the Yankees to address their SS need. I imagine the Yankees have considered a lot of different options to cover SS and don’t refute the reports that Chapman moving from 3B to SS was part of that consideration, but I don’t see them giving up Dominguez, Cabrera, and Gil for Chapman as a make shift SS options (along with Bassitt for rotation depth).

    Chapman doesn’t help differentiate the Yankees lineup since he’s another low average, high strikeout righty, which they already have a glut of. The prospect capital used in the trade would be better put towards a deal that lands Matt Olson, who is a much better fit for the Yankees.

    Down vote for Oakland.

    The Yankees contingent carries way too much risk and Waters is trending in the absolute wrong direction.
