That sounds like an overpay. 2 of our top prospects for a guy whose had an era near 4 in the NL. Thats too much.
Edit: Just looked and saw his era was above 4 this past season.
well the latest rumor is that Josh Harrison (last year of deal) would also come to us. 2B/3B. Could lead off is needed too. I'd do that trade.
Gerrit Cole ($7M) & Josh Harrison ($10M) for Clint Frazier, Chance Adams & 2 lower tier prospects? I'd do it.
Would still be under tax by about $11-$12M.
Tbh, I'd rather keep Chance & deal Miguel Andujar. Josh can fill that 2B/3B spot for a year then we go in for Manny Machado. Andujar would be blocked just like Clint is now.
I would be pretty sick if that was the case. Cole has injury problems and isn't an ace. Harrison is kinda mediocre to me. Never been a fan. Rather hold the prospects and give Andujar the job at 3rd to lose.
