as the baseball winter meetings get underway all eyes on the number one prize in the game that’s obviously the one time Astros superstar Gerrit Cole reports now tell us that Nationals superstar Stephen Strasburg preparing to sign a seven-year 245 million dollar contract that will keep him with the Nationals so those numbers that’s just a jumping off point to the crazy numbers that it’s gonna take to sign Gerrit Cole the usual suspects will be involved it’s gonna be the Yankees it’s gonna be the Dodgers it’s gonna be the Angels do not be surprised if somebody else gets involved in the Gerrit Cole sweepstakes he’s gonna get more years than Strasburg he’s gonna get significantly more money the deal by the time it’s done may be approaching 40 million dollars a year and obviously the Astros are not gonna pay that kind of a price owner Jim crane made it – very clear to everybody us included before the postseason started this last time around the Astros are using what they call the st. Louis Cardinals model you build from within you build with your own draft choices and you supplement where needed the idea that you chase the highest-paid free agent every year – to make the Astros a contender it’s simply not gonna happen Gerrit Cole is gonna be a wealthy wealthy man and it is well deserved obviously the best pitcher in the game down the stretch last season let’s sit back and watch how crazy these numbers get [Music]
