It's no secret that Gerrit Cole's free agency was one of the biggest stories of the early season, before the Astros scandal stole all the headlines. When Cole announced his intentions of joining the Bronx Bombers, Yankees fans were filled with anticipation about seeing their new man in action. Now we've got footage! This clip of Gerrit Cole throwing a bullpen session should get Yankee fans through the winter, and from this low angle, it is pretty cool to watch.
Every single piece of media involving Gerrit Cole will be hyped up this season, and why not? When he was your prized acquisition of an offseason that is filled with expectations of a World Series run, it is only natural for fans to fan the flames of excitement.
This is no disrepect to any of the other members of the rotation, because each pitcher will certainly have a role to play, including James Paxton when he returns from injury. However, if the only release that came out from the Yankees media team was Gerrit Cole throwing heaters, I'm sure fans would be more than content.
