Cubs trade with Yankees in aggressive effort to end 108-year World Series drought

Author:

The New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs have reportedly agreed on a deal that will send baseball's hardest thrower, Aroldis Chapman, to the Cubs.

The Yankees are getting four prospects and they'll still have an elite bullpen with All-Stars Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller setting up and closing games.

Chapman is known for his blazing fastball, frequently topping 100 mph and even going as high as 105 mph at times. Chicago already has the best record in baseball (59-38) and now Chicagoans can really start to dream of ending their 108-year-long World Series drought.

Chapman is a rental player as he's set to become a free agent after the season, according to CBS Chicago.
