During the magical 2016 baseball season, when the fresh-faced Chicago Cubs won the World Series, I was able to spy a dark cloud. The team, lacking a dominant “closer” to finish games, made a trade for Aroldis Chapman. At the time Chapman, with his 100-m.p.h. fastball, was nearly unhittable. As Cubs’ brass predicted, Chapman was a key performer in Chicago’s first Major League Baseball title in 108 years.
There was just one problem.
