Now that they know the Coles will move to New York, the Yankees have a lane to get to a $300M deal, unless the Angels or Dodgers go wild. The Dodgers hadn't talked w/Scott Boras on Cole as of Sunday morning. 2 GMs in on Rendon think that will be a slow process
Do I trust Peter Gammons in 2019? No, not at all. Yes, he’s been around the game for forever, but most of his tweets are the rambling nonsense of an old man past his prime. On top of that, I don’t trust a thing that him or Heyman say about a Boras client, because it’s always the extreme and meant to drive up player prices.
Think about it for a minute. The Angels and Dodgers have always thought their advantage would be that Cole wants to stay home. With that, they could save a few bucks by selling him on being close to family, the weather, and being a hometown hero. That helps Scott Boras ZERO. So you promise to have the old folks home give the old man an extra pudding cup in exchange for him tweeting out stuff that will make the Yankee overbid.
The report that Cole would move to New York is true, because anyone would move to New York for $250-$300mil. Hell, for that kind of money, I would move anywhere in the country AND punch my mom square in her face.
Just a little tip as we go through the Winter Meetings: Gammon and Heyman are bullshit.
