The Official Gerrit Cole (Please sign with the Angels) Thread

It’s just posturing man.  Everything both sides say is BS.  The good news is that they’ve obviously engaged in talks. 

But saying teams that don’t win enough aren’t going to get Cole seems to suggest current playoff teams have an advantage. Most things he says are designed to get himself more money. The only ways I can make sense of that one is, 1) If you want him to sign with you, you'd better be prepared to spend on more players (a disproportionate amount of whom have Boras as an agent, or 2) If your team sucks, it’ll cost you more to sign him. Edit: I guess 3) would be countering the Yankees narrative that he doesn’t want to play in New York.

He’s of course angling for more money. 
 

- Comes out that they had a meeting

- Gerrit doesn’t care about geography 

- Gerrit cares very much about “winning” 

weird how he’s dismissing the perceived favorable points for the Angels and pumping up the issues.  Very convenient.

Lol I was reading an Astros forum and they have this in their head that if we are paying this much for Cole and Trout we will never be a threat to them in the division.

 

God their fans are delusional.

It's funny because their payroll is higher than ours even if we added Cole and Wheeler.

Shhhh they might hear you and tell us we will never be a contender again and are wasting Trouts career.

I wonder what the fallout will be when current or former Astros players have to talk about the sign stealing issue. Right now, it’s the offseason, so they can keep their mouths shut. But let’s say when Cole signs with someone. Isn’t someone sure to ask him about this whole cheating thing? What’s he going to say? “Yeah, I didn't like it but what was I supposed to do?” “Yeah, we did it. I’m sorry now.”

I guess it’ll partially depend on whether anything official has come out from MLB; how much is confirmed. Otherwise, it might be just a no comment.

I think if we want any legit, cost-controlled starters the conversation starts and ends with Adell/Marsh. Guys like Jones, Thaiss, Ward etc... don't hold a ton of value. And lower level guys like Yan aren't likely to be seen as good chips yet. 

I know it's not all about rankings, but in general it's a good place to start. Pitching costs a premium so I'd expect any team willing to part with it to ask for our top 2-3 guys. A trade for Thor for example, would likely cost our top 3 and maybe even top 4. That just fucks our system right in the ass.

Just spend the damn money, Arte. 

With the Angels' no intent on signing Calhoun, Adell is untouchable at this point.

I was hoping for Gerrit but at this point I’ll settle with Garret 

Garret Cole and Mickey Calloway seen having dinner in Newport Beach with a third gentleman who was mostly busy eating a quinoa salad with tofu and downing a mountain dew.  He was wearing a shirt that said 'vote for stickboy' and humming the theme from iron eagle.   https://ift.tt/2Ow4DRH  #angels

People need to stop this if they don't get it or know the area.

The Del Taco Torii signed at was off Serfas Club Dr. (which when you turn is Frontage St. if I remember correctly) 

If I was out at Maestros I would have given ya'll a report.
