It’s 9 pm on a Tuesday night, but the baseball world never sleeps! And the Evil Empire strikes once again!
Breaking: Gerrit Cole to Yankees. 9 years. 36M per. 324M total.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) December 11, 2019
This is an absurd amount of money. I’ve been on record saying that I didn’t want Cole at prices less than this (it’s not just post-decision saltiness, I promise!) and $36 million for 9 years is more than anyone realistically expected at the start of the offseason. If I could summarize the general initial reactions of the staff, it would be relief. Onward to other targets! Spend that Cozart money wisely!
