Well, silver lining is we’ve already done this dance before. Just a few short months ago we were saying goodbye to Johnny Cueto and his fantastic Instagram posts and here we are again bidding another one of our stars a farewell. I don’t think I can accurately put into words how much it sucks that the Reds had to trade away probably the two best players on the team in a span of like six months, but that’s just what happens when you’re not winning baseball games. I’m happy for Chappy, though. He obviously wasn’t thrilled with being here and I can’t necessarily blame him. A lot of times it looked like he was just going through the motions last season, but that’s because him, me, and really all of Major League Baseball knew it was only a matter of time before he was lighting up the gun at 105 in another uniform. That still doesn’t make saying goodbye to Aroldis Chapman any easier though. So, goodbye, mi amor. I’ll really really miss you and your 100+ mph strikeouts and custom ‘Cuban Missile’ hats. Chappy is gonna kill it in LA, though. That city is made for guys who dress like this.
And drive this.
And have the coolest pair of custom Cement 3’s I’ve ever seen.
