Yanks Offered $54 Million For Chapman? (Updated)

(Updated: 11:44 AM)
We know Cashman will lie to the media so I'm not so sure I believe him on this one.!/MelissaSeguraSI/status/45298229184704512
The lawsuit mentioned in the tweet refers to a Florida lawsuit against the Fernandez and Hendricks Sports Management, Chapman's representatives, that alleges "tortuous interference" and "unjust enrichment" in signing Aroldis Chapman as a client.
 Regardless of the suit itself, I guess I should get off the Yanks case for not signing the guy because it appears like they certainly tried their best. I'm pretty shocked that he would pass up an extra $24MM to play in Cincy, but I guess he wasn't ready for the bright lights of The Big Apple.
