Gerrit Cole Not Short On Suitors

The Yankees, Angels, Rangers and Phillies are among the teams that have already shown interest in starting pitcher Gerrit Cole. The Nationals could be interested in him if they can't re-sign Stephen Strasburg, while the Astros haven't given up either. Cole is certain to set a record for a starter in free agency after leading baseball in strikeouts with 326 in 212 1/3 innings (33 starts) and finishing second to teammate Justin Verlander in the American League Cy Young. The 29-year-old right-handed fireballer has an elite strikeout rate and is one of, if not the best, starters in all of baseball. No matter where he's playing in 2020, he'll be one of the top pitchers off the draft board.

Mets Hire Carlos Beltran As Manager

The New York Mets hired former All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran as their new manager on Friday. He'll receive a three-year deal with an option for a fourth season. The nine-time All-Star played for New York from 2005 to 2011, but this will be his first gig as a manager in the big leagues. Beltran spent the 2018 season as an adviser to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. The Mets finished 86-76 in 2019 and fired Mickey Callaway after his second season at the helm. New York will once again have lofty expectations under Beltran in his first season with a rotation headed by Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.

Yuli Gurriel Homers in Game 7 Loss

Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel started off Game 7 with a second-inning home run that gave the Astros a 1-0 lead on Wednesday. He singled later in the game and had four high-quality at-bats. It certainly wasnt his fault that the Astros couldnt score more than two runs. They couldnt defend their home turf and lost all four games in Houston. The Nationals take home the championship after one of the greatest postseason stories to date.

Zack Greinke Goes 6 1/3 Innings in Game 7 Loss

This has to hurt for Houston Astros starting pitcher Zack Greinke, who pitched six amazing innings before Anthony Rendon took him deep in the seventh inning in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday. Juan Soto followed with a walk before Greinke was pulled for relieverWill Harris. Harris proceeded to give up a home run, and it took everything that Greinke worked so hard for away in a second. He still had a phenomenal performance and shut down this great Nationals lineup for six innings. Greinke certainly still has it in the tank and gave this Astros team every chance to win this Game 7.

George Springer Goes Hitless in Game 7

It was a terrible night at the plate for Houston Astros outfielder George Springer, who went 0-for-4 with a strikeout and a walk in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday. He did make hard contact against Patrick Corbin, but he couldnt find grass or the seats. Its hard to say it's disappointing, but it's a tough end to the season for a guy who battled injuries all year and still hit 39 home runs in just 122 games. The Astros will be back with a vengeance in 2020 to take the pennant back.
