    Their AAV’s should be about the same but Cole should get a longer deal

    Cole is the better pitcher and Stras' arm is one pitch away from falling off. Two Tommy John's and several other issues since SD State.

    would be totally open to stras on a 4-5 year deal
    problem is someone will almost certainly offer more

    I’d take Stras in a second on a 4-5 year deal at a high AAV over a 7-8 year deal for Cole.

    Maybe Stras will accept in exchange for being close to home.

    • Dodgers are telling teams that Gavin Lux is not available.
    • Teams are reporting that AJ Pollock and Joc Pederson are very available in trades.

    i love joc because he shows up in the postseason
    but his inability to hit lhp is a huge liability
    pollock... whoever wants him
    i like lux but i’d ship him in the right deal (ie: betts)

    I mean instead of going after Harper, they sign a head scratching deal for AJ and now he’s trade bait?

    WTF!!!!!!

    In the name of Jesus and Mary, what is this FO’s “strategy”?!?!

    so much for Cole going for 245
    this is insane
    that contract is definitely going to be an albatross going forward

    Just get Rendon

    we’re not getting Cole and we have a million starting pitchers

    our offense not showing up and our bullpen sucking ass has been our downfall

    This deal is coming with “significant” deferrals.

    Cole is expected to sign fairly quickly according to Morosi.

    Cole to the Yankees with a ridiculous contract feels like a lock....

    Strasburg 7 years and he's the same age as Kershaw? Wow. He definitely came through at the right time, pitched amazing in the post... but man...
