Will The Yankees Spend Over $320 Million On Cole?
Free Agent pitcher Gerrit Cole is easily the biggest name on the market this off season but how big will the New York Yankees go to land the Ace Righty? Vegas has set the over under for how much the total of Gerrit Cole's contract will be at $320 million and the Yankees are the betting favorite to pay him the money.
Yesterday Stephen Strasburg reportedly agreed to a 7 year $245 million deal to return to the Washington Nationals making him the highest paid pitcher in the history of baseball... for now. If the odds in Vegas are any indication Gerrit Cole could dwarf those numbers.
