Gerrit Cole

SDS

I just got Cole in a free pack. He is going for around 100k. He had been very average at best since the MLB introduced the sticky substance crackdown. Debating on selling him to try finishing most of the live series. With that said, do you think he gets downgraded with the next update? I don't foresee him dropping to gold, but I am thinking it's possible he goes to a low level diamond.

SDS

He might dip a point, but he's not going to drop below 90 or anything of that nature. The struggle is too small of a sample size. If you need him for the collection, just collection him. He's a grail card in that regard. If you don't need him, make a sell order and work towards cards you do need

GERRIT COLE - 2021

First 8 starts:
52.2 IP
1.37 ERA
78 K
3 BB

Last 9 starts:
52.1 IP
4.47 ERA
57 K
17 BB

If the latter continues, which I fully expect it to, he will be 85-87 by season end. If he gets way worse, he could (very unlikely) go gold but never-the-less if he isn't your last piece right now just sell. He won't go up unless they unban sticky stuff. He has essentially become a Pirate again, his cheating started heavily in Houston.

I am going to sell him and get the much needed stubs. I was thinking the same thing as you.

The pirates got a ton of [censored] for misusing him but even going back y college the knock on him was he was too hittable…until he went to Houston and now we know why.

Tyler Glasnow looks similar.
