The latest chapter in the Gerrit Cole saga reveals Astros dodged a bullet

Many fans wanted to see Gerrit Cole return to the Astros after the 2019 season, but Cole opted to sign a massive 324 million dollar contract with the Yankees. Now that we've seen 2020 play out and the Astros went further in the playoffs than New York, is it actually a blessing that the Astros aren't on the hook for Cole's contract with MLB owners being so cash-strapped due to the pandemic. Also, would the Astros even have a chance to re-sign George Springer or Michael Brantley if Jim Crane was stuck with Cole's boat anchor of a contract? Be sure to watch the video above to find out.
