The Houston #Astros indeed closing in on #Pirates ace Gerritt Cole, as @jonmorosi reports. This could be the deal that finally opens up free-agent starter market.

Gerrit Cole and his agents still waiting to be told he's been traded from #Pirates to #Astros. No official call yet


I've all but given up on baseball in general, but figured this was worth sharing.

I've seen this now on a couple sites and from some friends.

Funny thing to me is no one mentions, nor asks, what they got back for him. It's just kind of understood that the Pirates got back a giant pile of poo and nothing else.

I’m sure they got something useful and valuable. Like a ski lift.

For the record it appears the talking heads jumped the gun on this. No deal yet.

Cole never measured up to his potential in Pittsburgh. Quite disappointing really.

Just got a CBS Sports notification that the deal is final. Sorry, didn't take a screenshot - but included a 3B, SP, and two other players.

Now there’s just been a tweet that says Colin Moran and Joe Musgrove for Cole is the deal.
