Empire Looks To Bury Red Sox With Acquisition Of Cole

The only edge the Red Sox have on The Bronx Embalmers—and we mean the only edge—is in the starting rotation. And, frankly, the edge is not all that profound. The one area that Brian Cashman did not smoke Dave Dombrowski this off-season is in upgrading his rotation. Now, it appears that Cashman may be putting the final piece of his 2018 team in place—with the acquisition of SP Gerrit Cole. While Dombrowski makes excuses, Cashman acts. Reportedly, the 27-year-old Cole (12-2 in 2017) would be swapped for excess OF prospect Clint Frazier. Again, the Yankees deal from strength to make their overall team better. Quite a concept—you might want to try it, Dave!
