    Just think not too long ago Frazier and Andujar might have sealed the deal!
    I'm thinking he will get around 7/252ish kinda deal.(36m per year).

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    My guess is that the Yankees will offer Cole 7 years at $35 million per year for a total of $245 million with a 3 year opt out and a team option for one more year. Angels will match and the Yankees will guarantee the option year to get him. So they will spend $280 million. They will try to sign him by January 4th, but that will be pushed back a week or two. For that reason, I believe they will tell their own free agents that they will be discussing potential contracts for next year in mid January or so.

    Still pricey but I agree. One could question the wisdom of giving a 29 yr old a 7 year deal....but he is the best TORP available and precisely what the Yanks need NOW.

    That's a bit of a bummer
    No Wheeler
    No Cole
    No Stras.

    Doc, can we make note of this post if we do not get Cole or Stras?

    As much as I love the idea of Lindor, I think Rizzo is a better fills a bigger position of need and allows DJ to play second.

    yanks can't be that dumb thinking the current staff can win it all for them.. the current staff does not go deep into games the bullpen will be tired and that will come back to haunt us in the playoffs..

    I don't think an opt out at age 32 is going to be worth all that much to Cole, especially if he's already making 35 million, he'd have to think he could either make more than that, or get more than 4 years guaranteed to make it worth his while.

    I guess it's better to have it than not have it.

    I am rooting hard for Girardi!

    Yanks are idiots if they don’t get any of the big boys last year or this year.
