Required reading during the off-season is MLB Trade Rumors and while we are not normally in the business of promoting other websites, the aforementioned site is a must stop several times a day. Upon making the last stop of the day there yesterday, a blood-chilling story was listed about a rumor involving the Yankees and the Pirates discussing a Gerrit Cole trade.

The trade of Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell to the Padres was hardly a surprise.
