Law: Cubs pay a heavy price for Aroldis Chapman, on and off the field - Keith Law Blog- ESPN

Keith Law makes the case for banning players who are involved in domestic violence incidents.

Of course, I’m on record as opposing any team’s decision to acquire and pay a player with a domestic violence incident in his past, especially his recent past. I criticized the Yankees for trading for Chapman in December and expressed my disappointment in the Mets for picking up Jose Reyes and minimizing what he did in describing his own domestic violence incident.
