You travel for a living, David?

I'm going to stop feeling sorry for you about the Indians.

In our league you can draft an AL player during the all star break, keep them active for at least 1 week, and if they're in the NL the next year and you still have them you can keep them for $10.

If one comes from the AL after the break you can pay a $25 fee to draft them; but they can't be kept after the season.

Our league doesn't have FAAB though I've been pushing to go that route for a few years now.

Nobody bid more than $10 when he came over from the AL ??

I have him for $10 if he stays in the NL.

Leagues that hold onto players bounced from AL to NL in season may have a different thought Alex. I still have Chapman until freeze date March 31. If he comes back to the AL, he's mine at 20, to be paired with Diaz at 10, and put me in the saves business. 

BTW, I wasn't counting chickens when the Indians were up 3-1 in the Series, but I was kinda hoping for a parade, as I was explaining to the Chinese soldier pictured here:

I have a vested interest (Betances) in Chapman's not returning to the Yankees, so this from BP today is not good news.

Washington may focus on Melancon instead of Chapman

In further Nationals trade chatter, apparently Washington had its eyes on Aroldis Chapman as a potential solution to their closer situation. There were rumors that Chapman’s camp wanted a contract around $100 million, and that number sent up a decent amount of alarm bells. Apparently the alarm was loud enough in Washington that the Nats have decided he's is too rich for their blood.

Jon Heyman tweeted out that the Nationals have decided to focus on making sure Mark Melancon returns to the team next season. Melancon did a great job for the Nationals last season--he put up a 1.82 ERA with 17 saves over 30 appearances for Washington, with a 2.91 DRA and 81 cFIP for the entire season. Heyman also pointed out that he was a great fit for their clubhouse, so it’s easy to see why the Nats would want to try their best to bring him back.

With Chapman apparently headed for a major payday and Kenley Jansen possibly getting a contract that won’t be much less than what Chapman could be getting, Melancon almost seems like a bargain in this market. Granted, he’s still going to get a substantial raise in pay, but the Nationals could definitely do a lot worse than having a guy like Melancon in their bullpen, so it makes plenty of sense for them to focus on the achievable goal of bringing him back for next season.

Is Rumor Roundup in the paid area, Mike?

While we're waiting for his answer, a possible bonus for our small but committed band of winter faithful:

I was dead wrong. Chapman looked wiped out from the start last night.

I don't think it was so much the pitch count by itself but not having someone ready to start the 9th meant he had to get back up and warm up one more time than necessary and all to pitch to one batter.

Could've been much more than an embarrassment. The bases loaded, Napoli at the plate, the score 7-2... even a single would have meant that Chapman would stay in the game to the end.
