Gerrit Cole Signs with Yankees (9/324)

Recommended Posts

Jack Curry -  Just spoke to Scott Boras. Asked the agent what helped make Gerrit Cole choose the Yankees and he said, “Five conversations with Hal Steinbrenner,” and “Andy Pettitte.” Boras was impacted by Hal’s persistence and Cole was influenced by Andy’s stories about pitching in NY.

Buster Olney -  It's likely that the Yankees will pay more for Gerrit Cole and Giancarlo Stanton than the Orioles will spend on their entire team.

Its about time we went back to our spending ways... ever since George passed we've gone away from what worked. We built a nice team... but starting pitching has always been mediocre.

1. Gerrit Cole

2. Luis Severino

3. Domingo German (Happ or Montgomery  at beginning of season)

4. Masahiro Tanaka

5. James Paxton

We should be set!

Joel Sherman -  Cole stressed to his camp that winning a championship was his priority. He loves Orange County, but a friend told him, “When your primary goal is to win a championship, it doesn’t matter where you sleep.”

Love it.  Get a legit ace, one of the best pitchers in the game.  Also happened to be our biggest need.  Rotation looks very nice now.

Holy crap!  That is a hell of lot of cash. O.o   Must be nice...   

Per the UN, Cole now has a higher GDP than 9 countries.

Yankees get Cole

Makes sense given the Yankee's pitching issues. I ? though the contract length.

Once Strasburg got 7 yrs $245mil,this was bound to happen.

Strasburg's is more risky due to only pitching 200 IP 2 times, and hes 31.   Both getting paid until 38

 

Dodgers offered Cole similar money, they felt he chose the Yankees simply because he wanted to be a Yankee.
