Astros GM: 'Nothing imminent' in deal for Pirates RHP Cole

Astros GM: 'Nothing imminent' in deal for Pirates RHP Cole

He does say that things could pick back up quickly and a deal could get done between the two teams.

Jon Morosi of MLB.com reported a trade is "imminent" after he and his colleague Jesse Sanchez reported talks were "picking up steam" and had "intensified in the past 24 hours".

Cole to Houston also would be a tough blow for the New York Yankees, as the New York Daily News reported Monday that the Bronx Bombers landing the one-time All-Star was "inevitable."

At this point, the hold up for any team trying to trade for Cole is the Pirates reportedly wanting three top prospects in a deal. The Pirates aren't the Marlins. There is a lot of room for improvement there which can be fixed so I think Cole would be better as a member of Astros than if he were with the Pirates.

This film will be telling the story of fictional character Dominika Egorova as she is tricked into becoming a Sparrow recruit. A new teaser poster revealed first by IGN goes very literal with the Red Sparrow title.

The Astros won the World Series in 2017, and now they'll also have the benefit of a full season of Justin Verlander after acquiring him in August.

There was belief among baseball people that GM Brian Cashman would only make the trade on his own terms, meaning no Gleyber Torres and most likely including Clint Frazier and one of his pitching prospects, like Chance Adams. They were one of several teams rumored to be asking about the Pirates starter prior to the July 31.

The Yankees miss out on righthander Gerrit Cole. He is still only 27 years old and has time to mature still.
