    Cole....Yankees.....DONE. Cole Severino Paxton Tanaka German


    GLENN CHENMåned siden

    So now, all the pressure is on them. If they don't win it all next year, Tanaka and Paxton will be free agents. I think they can keep one but not both.

    Guy on the right is CLUELESS... you can count on Mike Trout for without question the next 5 years 🙄 and the fact he said adell and Tatis were the same talent. What an idiot.

    Forget Cole Yankee fans. $280/$300 million is too much even $245 was a steep price, they can find some cheaper options and fill the rotation nicely! Last thing Yankees need is to add this to the payroll and in 2 years dudes arm dies down and then everyone begins to say how stupid the Yankees were to sign him for that much money! Play it smart and safe cashman! Plus Cole hasn’t shown he’s worth that much, if this was verlander in his prime that would be a diff story! I know us yankee fans want to win badly but this is not the smart way, Hope cole chooses to go to the west coast so he can help the Yankees out!

    @El Principe Dude you have to be trolling. Starting pitching has been our achilles heel for years. We need Cole. He's the final piece. You roll the dice and go get a guy who can win you a World Series. Not fucking "play it safe." Who else is going to get us there? You realize Verlander, Greinke, and Scherzer are all guys in their mid 30s that are top flight aces. Be happy we have this kind of caliber player on the roster now.

    CC was determined to sign with a west coast team in 2008. Not only did the Yanks convince him to sign with them, he moved his family to NJ. They had always lived in CA when he played in Cleveland. And he ended living playing in NY. As long as they offer him the most money, he will be a Yankee. He wants to win. That's not happening in Anaheim anytime soon.

    Gerrit Cole to the angels would guarantee the angels having perennial mvp and Cy young winners...and finishing in 3rd place

  34. Platerpus7

    Jason Young no it would not. And never will. Cole wants to end up in monument park. He doesn’t want to waste his career like Mike Trout. Nobody cares about LA anymore. People are fleeing your shitty state

    @Zach Kostoff We will see, I just don't think a team with that be strikeout number can win a world series. (By the way, Cole has signed with Yankees)

    GLENN CHENMåned siden

    They won't win, this team is still tend to be a home run hitting team, their strikeouts number is still high. If they don't figure it out, they will lose to Astros once again (I know the cheating news on Astros, but I still believe they are the best team even if they don't have Cole)

    Mr. Yates, if you are going to be a professional reporter representing ESPN at the Winter Meetings, how about you take the time to dress appropriately. You're not a member of the catering or janitorial staff, nor are you auditioning to be a ballboy. Come on brother! Dress the part!

    Cole has made it clear he doesn’t care about anything but money. The Angels have the same money the Yankees do. This idea that the Yankees can just outbid everybody is ridiculous. Arte Moreno has more than enough money to sign the man
