Mark Sheldon, beat writer for just dropped this bombshell on Twitter:

That’s what I’m hearing, too, at least the first part.

What that means, who knows? The Dodger position players aren’t a great fit for the Reds. Chapman as a second closer for the Dodgers doesn’t really make perfect sense, either. Maybe the Reds are talking to a different team. Maybe it’s a three-way deal.

Wise advice: While it’s fun to run with the media reports, don’t believe what you read on the internet until you hear it directly from a team involved.

Buckle up.

Jayson Stark (ESPN) implies that the Dodgers may not agree the deal isn’t done.
