And if you don't, I've entered them. Why the bids sometimes get dropped is another mystery.

If you commit to the no closers philosophy you don't need to see bids for Chapman.

He's the Strasburg of closers - very good, but not quite elite, and on the sidelines with the slightest hiccup. And the Yankees already have one cleat in the playoffs - they're not going to push Chapman if anything pops up.
