How the Astros can make the money work for Gerrit Cole

Many Houston fans are wondering what it would take for the Astros to bring Gerrit Cole back and sign him to a long-term contract.

Cole is represented by Scott Boras who is known for being one of the best agents when it comes to getting his clients paid.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo and Raheel Ramzanali discuss what the Astros would have to do to come up with the money to pay Gerrit Cole and keep him in an Astros uniform.

With the MLB Winter Meetings in full swing, several rumors are starting to swirl about the Astros listening to offers for shortstop Carlos Correa.

Andy Martino of SNY reports the Mets and Astros have had discussions regarding Correa, but nothing seems serious at this point. That report was enough to get the attention of Carlos Correa who called GM Jeff Luhnow to find out if there's any truth to the rumors.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo shares his thoughts on the possibility of Correa getting traded, if Josh Reddick could be involved in the deal, and much more.
