Cashman should have traded for Cole last year. Plain and simple.




Cole last year before the trade wasn't pitching like the worldbeater he became after he got traded to the Astros and they applied their "special sauce". Plain and simple.



 


He was 19-8 with a 2.60 era as a 24 year old 


Severino was never close to that even before he was injured but I bet you thought he was pretty good


And yes Cole could have been had if the Yankees would have parted with Frazier and a couple of others (and no it would not have been Andujar)



1) Right, and he had two mostly mediocre years after that.


2) Severino was pretty good in both 2017 and 2018. In 2017, he was much better than Cole. In fact, going by BWAR he was more than twice as good as Cole in 2017, and clearly better in 2018.


3) Well, no, they wanted Andujar, because they accepted a lesser package from the Astros than they demanded from the Yankees, partly because it included a play who they felt could close the hole they had at 3rd: Colin Moran.

Is Houston's pitching coach and analytics department coming with him? No? Then you're gonna get the Pittsburgh version of Cole.




See, here's the thing: unless they're doing something illegal, whatever the Astros are doing to give him more spin and to improve his pitch usage and sequencing they've already taught him, and some, if not most of it, will go with him to whatever team that signs him, assuming it isn't the Astros.

Cole got beat by another CY Young Winner. Scherzer isn't chopped liver like the guys on the Yankees staff.
