Not enough.

Squeeze the Yankees hard, Mr. Cole.

With Boras as his agent you KNOW he will. I can still see him heading West. That was his 1st choice.

Needs to keep the Yanks in it though to drive up his price to go out west.

“heh heh,“he says while chuckling at Yankee fans....

the $250 million offer been on the table at least 4 days now

Offer wasn't actually formally made until last night when Cashman arrived in San Diego for the GM meetings.

As a Sox fan I know what your saying. I hate Boras's guts but if I were a player there's no one else I would want to rep me.

Smart $ says the Dodgers.

I'm seriously thinking Angels is his final destination. . Rumour is that it's between the NYY and LAA but who knows ?

With Strasburg getting $245m for 7  I can see Cole getting over $300m for say 8 years. Comes down to NYY and Angels. Insane money !

If that’s the case sign Ryu for half the money

As a Dodgers fan, my gut tells me they won't go to extremes to get Cole.  My gut says their utlimate goal is Rendon.  

My guess is Yankees, but if I were a Yankees fan I'd be a bit worried about the Angels.  They can do crazy things when Mareno gets a wild hair

Gotta give credit to the Cashman and Hal here. Cole had to get done and they got it done. It might not work out. But they had to do this.

Now? JUST WIN, BABY!

Only weird thing about this team is they might not have a lefty bat the whole lineup. Stanton is the biggest cock block ever, Id be willing to give up a couple proper prospects to unload him west somewhere. 2020 should be Frazier’s time imo...even tho, still righty bat. Sign Smoak at first?

Gotta think JA Happ is unloaded, Yankees like to use 5th spot in young starters.

That was the rumour before they signed Cole.

Gotta see what happens with German. Obviously he is going to be suspended for at least half the season but my guess is that he would be the fifth starter if available.

Yankees rotation:

1. Cole

2. Severino

3. Tanaka

4. Paxton

5. Montgomery 

 

that rotation with our lineup and bullpen = superteam

Half season suspension would actually be a good thing.  Usually there’s at least 1-2 starters who go down with injury by the time that happens German comes off suspension and is ready to go

They will be very tough to beat. This does put a huge target now on the backs of Cashman and puppet Boone. They are out of excuses.
