A closer is so much different than an outfield bat. Look at what the Tigers got for Martinez, which is a much better indicator, or what the Mets got for Bruce. Martinez went for basically a bag of balls and bats. The value of a shutdown closer is so high right now.

You think Chapman for 2 months commands a better return than Harper for a full season?  Not to mention if you trade for Harper before the season you can make a QO and get a compensation pick, which the Cubs couldn't do with Chapman.  Come on.
