Ohtani is eligible for arbitration after next season.

So he's on the cheap for at least next year.

Chron: Astros owner Jim Crane said on Monday the team "may make a run" at re-signing Gerrit Cole, but intimated he would rather stay below baseball's competitive balance tax.

Chuck’s source should read this.

My name is not “dude,” but I am glad to hear it.

Can't we just wait till the end of the season to worry about this shit?  We have a big game tomorrow.  That's all that matters right now.

No, it is not, but I want to win. Do you fucking think I don’t?

Never said you didn't care about winning.  Just struggling to understand why it is so important to worry about Cole's whereabouts for next season now, rather than after the season is over.

I'm not overly worried and it may not be all that important now. I guess the way I look at it, Cole is a big part of this team and their success. Although this season isn't over, I'm hoping he can be in an Astros uniform beyond this season.

Nice.  Glad I'm not the only one who remembers that one.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Actually, what I said was “My name is not dude.” Chuck can call me anything he wants and frequently does.

Not unless it's haiku or iambic pentameter.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Here's hoping Cole tonight proves himself the second half of a heroic couplet.
