Get Your Gerrit Cole News

Gerrit Cole - a lifelong Yankees fanatic - is pictured left as a youngster holding a sign during the 2001 World Series. Plus Cole was labeled the #1 high school player in the country by PerfectGame Crosscheckers, so how could the Yankees resist.

Here are a few stories from the local Anaheim media including one on his upcoming decision to go pro or collegiate as well as another article describing his final start of the season.

Granted, high school pitching stats are skewed, particularly when you can throw fastballs in the upper 90's, but take a look at Cole's 2008 line: 8-2 record; 0.58 ERA; 75.2 innings; 30 hits; 121 strikeouts; 18 walks.

Finally, here's some video of Cole talking about...Cole.
