There have been two huge signings so far. The Yankees nabbed starting ace Gerrit Cole for a humungous long term contract. I still wonder if they are going to resign OF Brett Gardner and most rumors suggest they will. I sure hope so. he was a key player for them last season. The addition of Cole catapults the Yankees as preseason favorites to win the World Series. The Angels were also pursuing Cole but have redirected their energies and just signed a healthy 7 year contract with Nationals star 3B Anthony Rendon. This is a great addition to their lineup ( he is also a fine defensive player) and is a much needed addition to prevent teams from pitching around Mike Trout. The Rendon/Trout combo is the deadliest in the MLB now. The Angels still need pitching and my understanding is they are looking for a quality front line starter. But with Strasburg resigning with the Nationals and striking out with Cole the pitcher pool is shrinking although there are still a few very good pitchers out there for the taking.
