Which ace would you rather have: Gerrit Cole or Jacob deGrom?

The New York Yankees flexed their wallets again, securing the best pitcher in free agency by throwing $324 million at Gerrit Cole. The former Houston Astro finished second in the AL Cy Young race this past season, and many feel he is now the best pitcher in New York. However, the Big Apple already has a two-time Cy Young winner in Jacob deGrom. Who would you rather have as the ace of your rotation? ⚾

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!

New York is Cole's town now.

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.

DeGrom is the man you want to be your ace.
