Now, according to multiple reports, the Astros are on the verge of landing Pittsburgh Pirates ace Gerrit Cole. Cole is 59-42 overall with a career ERA of 3.50. The Astros would appear set to open the season with a rotation of Dallas Keuchel, Justin Verlander, Cole, Lance McCullers and Charlie Morton if the trade is completed. He was 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 203.0 inning pitched in 2017.

Cole to Houston also would be a tough blow for the New York Yankees, as the New York Daily News reported Monday that the Bronx Bombers landing the one-time All-Star was "inevitable."

Seahawks fire OC Darrell Bevell
The trademark running game over the past two seasons has withered, a span that coincides with the departure of Marshawn Lynch. The firing would be the first of a coordinator for the Seahawks since the removal of Bates following the 2010 season.

In the postseason, Cole has a 1-2 record in three games started. Darvish is the free agent starter Houston has been mentioned alongside the most, and there are only so many "high-end" pitchers on the free agent market.

When the Houston Astros won the World Series, people weren't just celebrating in Houston.
