    That's disappointing. I'm not a Yankee hater, though it does get tiresome, but I really wanted him to go to the Angels if anywhere other than the Phillies. Anything to get Trout to the World Series.

    I knew he was gonna exceed $300MM but jeez. The tail end of the deal will be ugly unless he opts out after 5.

    This. The Yanks future is now, not in 9 years. He is a Boras client, so he will opt out after 5 anyways, hopefully more gracefully than Arod did in the middle of the world series.

    I'm sure the Yankees brass fully expects to relatively eat the last four years of the deal if he does not opt out, and they will gladly take that trade to win another title, even though it's not a guarantee. That's a tough fan base to keep happy, this move shows to the fans, money spenders, they are doing everything they can in the immediate future.

    Cole
    Severino
    Paxton
    Tanaka
    German

    With the addition of Cole to the rotation, he places the Yankees' rotation firmly within the top 10 in MLB, instead of the middle of the pack. They added Cole without mortgaging their future, FA pick up, and for an organization like the Yankees all it cost them was money. They are very thin when it comes to high-end, impactful prospect arms in their system, with D. Garcia still being widely profiled as a bullpen piece. Good for them recognizing their shortfalls, also that the window is open for them and mostly within their control for the next few years.

    Where do you place their rotation now with Cole?

    Personally, I place them third behind the Nationals and then the Indians.

    I had completely forgotten about the German domestic violence case, perhaps you are right. If you are correct about that, is Montgomery likely to fill that spot in the rotation? Even if that is the case, I would still personally place their starting rotation third in MLB. Where would you personally place them?
