Right-hander Gerrit Cole could bolt the Houston Astros for the biggest pitching contract ever Look to the west coast. According to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report, four teams stand out as Even Cole ’s teammate Josh Reddick can see the writing on the wall. "All the time," outfielder Josh Reddick says.

The Angels, in particular, are where many within the industry expect Cole to gravitate, given the proximity of Angel Stadium to his high school home. This is a story the Yankees have seen before, going back to their signing of CC Sabathia. They also had to entice Sabathia away from his California homeland by paying a premium in free agency. 

Of course, Sabathia hadn’t received much interest from the Dodgers, his desired team at the time, whereas it would not be surprising in the least to see the Angels – or another Golden State franchise – going hard after Cole. But he’s not the only potential free agent hurler being featured in this week’s World Series…

Astros, Yankees going with bullpens for Game 6

  Astros, Yankees going with bullpens for Game 6 Neither the Houston Astros nor the New York Yankees have announced who will start Game 6 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday, but both squads are going to rely exclusively on relievers. "It will be a bullpen game," Astros manager AJ Hinch said following Friday's 4-1 loss at Yankee Stadium, according to MLB.com. "We'll talk about it on the ride home I'm unlikely to use (Gerrit) Cole."

  • After Cole, Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals would be the most talented arm on the market. There’s a feeling within the industry, however, that he won’t get there, per MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand. Strasburg, remember, was the rare Scott Boras client to sign an early extension, and it could be that Boras will leverage Strasburg’s opt-out into a longer deal with the Nationals. For his part, Strasburg has shown no inclination to test foreign waters, and tacking a couple years and a couple million dollars to the four years, $100M already owed him after 2019 certainly could be enough to keep him in DC. After his current playoff run, it’s hard to imagine Stras pitching in another uniform. Still, if the window opens, there are sure to be suitors come to call. 
  • There’s no telling how much the free agency of the above-noted hurlers could change the shape of the league. Look no further than this week’s World Series for evidence. The Astros and Nationals will face off starting tomorrow with rosters built around “imported” pitching, per MLB.com’s Jim Callis. The Astros brought in Cole, Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke via trade, whereas the Nationals signed Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin and Anibal Sanchez in free agency. Whichever team wins four of the next seven games will add to a recent history of champions built around homegrown offense and supplemented pitching. The Cubs in 2016, Astros in 2017 and Red Sox in 2018 all boasted homegrown cores of position players and hired guns on the hill.

Gerrit Cole, Max Scherzer set for a rematch on Sunday

  Gerrit Cole, Max Scherzer set for a rematch on Sunday Although both could see bullpen action depending on how the World Series progresses in Game 4 and beyond, if necessary, Sunday’s Game 5 will be the last scheduled start in a historically dominant season for the Astros’ Gerrit Cole and a potentially landmark opportunity for the Nationals’ Max Scherzer. The two righthanders faced off in Game 1, won 5-4 by the Nationals with both figuring in the decision to begin a series that has featured some of the best pitchers of this era — Justin Verlander, Cole and Zack Greinke for the Astros, Scherzer and Game 2 winner Steve Strasburg for the Nationals.

Gerrit Cole is on the Astros now, giving them a rotation that features Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, and Lance McCullers. Cole will be followed out the door by McCutchen and Harrison, and I’d have to guess that they’d rather have prospects for Ivan Nova instead of his bargain efficiency during the
