Latest Cole rumor

Things may be coming to a head.

And . . .

If the Yankees are really serious about Corbin, the Pirates aren’t in a position to play hardball. If they’re going to insist on Gleyber Torres, they’re probably ruling out a trade. Then again, Corbin isn’t as good a pitcher as Cole and has only the one year of control.

UPDATE: There’s also this article from the NY Post. It seems to confirm that the sticking point is Torres. Beyond that, I’d be cautious drawing any conclusions from it because the NYC media largely serve as mouthpieces for the Yankees.
