Yes he is a 20/20 guy and possibly a 30/30 guy!!!

But you got Reddick 3 more years, Springer 2-3 at least....

And Tucker should be up in 2-3 for a long term solution.

But man I agree Tucker and Fisher long term in our OF is dynamite.

The Garrett Cole deal is done....waiting on details!!!

I am afraid I will be disappointed, as the Pirates wanted Tucker or Whitley

11:26 - Jeff Passan (yahoo sports) tweeted his sources say the deal is NOT done completely, and Cole has yet to be notified 'hes on the move' .

also..no details on what the deal would be other than possible salary.

LOL Ok.....

My good buddy is a part time baseball agent who works for a big sports agency. So he gets updates and such that I am sure you don't

He said he was told it is pretty much done and working on financial part and the finishing touches.

He does it part time as he just left his collegiate baseball job for a new job outside of coaching collegiately, bc he started a family.

He works for an agency and does the recruiting and scouting. Not a full blown agent. This is a side job for him at the moment.

Good question. Like i just said he is not an agent so to say, but works for a sports agency.

Another guy he knows, an ex-MLB player also does it and he is a coach for a D1 in Central Texas. He beat him out for the slightly higher position as his MLB experience is a big plus. I am not sure what this other guy does for them

I am ok with that. Moran is expendable and weak defense

Paulino should be an MLB starter, but hasnt shown it yet and has PED usage clowded over him

Fisher will be an above avg OF IMO

I think the addition of Cole could be a great step for us. Good pitching beats good hitting!

Yes I got a feeling the Pirates had a last min sudden change of plans and wanted Martes over Paulino....is my suspicion.

And the Astros may have balked over that. Don't blame either side.

Time will tell.

What? Thought your Canadian boyfriend part time secret agent sports scout ex-D1 coach family guy with no name had the inside scoop....?

Quote:
Because, according to Jon Morosi, the Astros were close to an agreement to get Cole from the Pirates. According to other reports like this one from Jerry Crasnick, the situation is a little more nuanced than that, or might not be happening at all. And even others, like Jeff Passan, are now reporting that it was an entirely false rumor from the beginning and is still only exists in fantasy form for both sides.

Talk all you want

The talks are still ongoing as of 4am today.

Arbitration is an issue along with them wanting Whitley or Tucker.

Bet he has more knowledge, played longer then you, was on more draft lists and coached more MLB players then you. But keep on bashing all you want.

I can guarantee you that talks are ongoing as of 12:41 this afternoon. Of course arbitration is an issue, cuz if Astros get him by Friday they can submit their number instead of pittsburghs. Of course they want Tucker or Whitley. And I don't know anybody.😄 See how easy that was? And if it gets done, and I think it will, it will look like I knew something

I talked with my buddy...I WAS WRONG!!!

He was offered a full time spot at MVP Sports Agency. He moved, so he was contemplating the offer or turned it down. In the meantime Jeremy Fikac took the full time job and was offered more money because of his MLB Experience.

He still has a part time offer on the table to work in between his real job and in the summer.

He told me Machado is under contract with them and the owner/top dog for MVP will get 3% of his contract

I'm late to the party here but I was flipping out yesterday. I'm good with it as long as we keep Tucker and Whitley. Like y'all have said it only makes since if it gets done quick before arbitration has to be filed.

I'm good with a Fisher, Martes, Alvarez type deal or Moran somewhere in there. Cole is a top flight dude but 2 yrs left and shakey the last two years in spots. I'm not down for either one of our top 2 guys.

I think the pirates are trying to maximize their profits and trying to get more for him as time gets closer.
