Which ace would you rather have: Gerrit Cole or Jacob deGrom?
Gerrit Cole might be a seven-year vet, but he's only getting better with age.
Last year with the Astros, Cole lead the American League with a 2.50 ERA and 326 strikeouts. He also notched 20 wins en route to a World Series berth and went 4-1 in the postseason. DeGrom hasn't even been to the playoffs in four years!
Cole is the new kid on the block, but deGrom is still the king of New York pitching.
The Mets ace has won two consecutive National League Cy Young Awards and is one of the most unhittable pitchers in the league. He led the NL in strikeouts and had a lower ERA than Cole. DeGrom's contract is also nearly $200 million less than Cole's, giving you more bang for your buck.
