Gerrit Cole will be the most sought after free agent on the market this offseason and the New York Yankees are badly in need of pitching.

CC Sabathia, who is now retired, spoke with Cole about pitching in New York. Both Cole and Sabathia are from California.

“Me and Gerrit Cole have spoken at length many times about me pitching as a Yankee as a West Coast Guy,” Sabathia said. "This is crazy, this is shaping out … like the same offseason I had.

"If you give [him] enough money, he’s going to want to come here. I am speaking from experience."
