No deal in place for Gerrit Cole

According to multiple reports, the Pirates have reached an agreement to deal ace Gerrit Cole to the world champion Astros.

MLB Network's Jon Morosi was first to report that the teams have agreed to terms on a trade.

Yet Astros owner Jim Crane has been public in his desire to land another quality pitcher, telling MLB.com's Alyson Footer on Monday the team is "actively pursuing a high-end starter". Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated". His best season came in 2015, when he posted a career-high 19 wins and career-low 2.60 ERA en route to his only all-star appearance.

Bills Mafia Takes Over Jacksonville For Buffalo's First Playoff Game Since 2000
All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey tipped and then intercepted Peterman's third pass, and the Jaguars ran out the clock. The third-seeded Jaguars (10-6) won the AFC South and earned their first home playoff game since January 2008.


The Astros would hope that Cole bounces back to his form from 2013-2016 when he had a 3.23 ERA over 579 1/3 innings of work. Keuchel, of course, becomes a free agent after the 2018 season, so Cole's presence will help cushion the blow of him leaving after the season, assuming he leaves.

When the Houston Astros won the World Series, people weren't just celebrating in Houston. It's less clear how badly the Pirates need outfield prospects given the presence of Austin Meadows, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco.
