So when this Yankees, Cubs deal is completed today...this is what we'll know: 1. Cubs remain team to beat and favorite to win World Series as Chapman is a difference maker in post-season because of ability to shut down Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy of Nats and lefty lineup of Giants. 2. Yankees got Cubs best prospect not in big leagues and potential future all star. 3. Yankees got far more for Chapman and I mean far more than what they gave up to get him. For more after it's official join us on Baseball Tonight 10 & 12.

The Yankees are 36-3 when leading after six innings this year. They were 66-3 last year, according to ESPN's Stats and Info's Megan O'Donnell. In other words, Aroldis Chapman has put on a show in the 9th, but he hasn't really made the Yankees better.

Sources: Yankees, Cubs talking Chapman deal

Teixeira goes yard early

Mark Teixeira drove a 425-foot home run to straight-away center field at Yankee Stadium during the second inning against the Giants on Sunday. The homer was his longest since almost a year ago -- July 30, 2015.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Gleyber Torres is a 19-year-old shortstop in the Cubs' system. He is hitting .275 with 9 homers and 47 RBIs at Single-A. He has a .791 OPS. Colleague Buster Olney reported the Yankees are high on him, making him a possible target in an Aroldis Chapman trade. If the Yankees were to make a deal for Torres, it would demonstrate their commitment to adding overall talent to the organization instead of just looking for certain positions since shortstop is a franchise strength led by Didi Gregorius.

Heard from multiple sources that Hal Steinbrenner still hasn't given go-ahead to Brian Cashman to trade Aroldis Chapman. So nothing imminent

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman on trade talks: "There's a lot of rumors and stuff out there right now. I don't have any information but my agent did say they're talking to him, but that's all I have."

The Yankees just turned a really slick 4-1-5 double play to end the eighth. Starlin Castro and Mark Teixeira both dove for a Ramiro Pena grounder in the 3-4 hole. Castro came up with it and fired to pitcher Chad Green covering first. Green then fired to third, and Chase Headley scooped the throw before applying a tag on Mac Williamson.

Giants on the board as Buster Posey delivers a two-out, two-run single in the seventh. New York up 5-2. Final line on Nate Eovaldi: 6.2 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K. It was Chad Green who surrendered Posey hit.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Four straight Yankee hits and Jeff Samardzija's day is over after 5 2/3 innings. Didi Gregorius' rope double to deep center adds another run for a 5-0 New York lead.

Starlin Castro, RBI single to left. Yankees 4, Giants 0 in the sixth.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Ramiro Pena dives to his left and starts a highlight-worthy 4-6-3 double play off Jacoby Ellsbury's scorching grounder, but Aaron Hicks scores to make it 3-0 Yankees in the sixth.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Nathan Eovaldi is through six shutout innings. Normally Joe Girardi could turn to Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman, but he prefers not to use them. We'll see how the Yankees piece together these last nine outs with a 2-0 lead over the Giants.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Prospects if Aroldis Chapman ends up in Washington could include Ps Erick Fedde and Koda Glover, per Keith Law.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

No. 7 hitter Mark Teixeira cranks one into the right-centerfield bullpen. His ninth homer. 2-0 Yankees in the second.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Yankees DH/possible trade chip Carlos Beltran connects for his 21st homer in the first inning. He continues to take out of the No. 3 hole.
