The New York Yankees are looking to make free agent front-line starter Gerrit Cole an offer he simply cannot refuse.

According to the New York Times’ Bob Klapisch, the Yankees are working on a making a record-setting seven-year, $245 million contract offer to Cole, which would set  anew mark for pitchers in terms of overall value as well as average annual value.

According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman and Mark Feinsand, while the Yankees have not officially made the offer to Cole, they are not far from doing so. Cole and his agent Scott Boras have requested interested teams to submit their initial offers.

Cole is expected to draw interest from the Los Angeles Dodges and and the Los Angeles Angels, who could throw their hat in the ring of what could be a fevered bidding war to land Cole, who is widely considered to be the cream of the free agent crop this year.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is spouting off at the mouth again, and is taking aim at his own organization, specifically for the way that the training staff handled the injury of Browns’ superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr..

“I’d say that it wasn’t handled right,” Mayfield said, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter. “He’s not able to run as well as he … should be able to, as well as he knows. And that’s frustrating for him. You can sense some of his frustration, where that comes from. It wasn’t handled the right way, in our training room. It is what it is. His not 100% is still good enough for us.”

Beckham reportedly has a sports hernia injury and is weighing offseason surgery to correct the issue that has been hampering him since training camp.

“I don’t really know,” Beckham said. “You have to ask the doctors if you have a chance to interview them. I really don’t know what to tell you.”

“I think it could’ve been addressed earlier on,” Mayfield said. “Looking back on it, obviously, hindsight is 20/20, he probably would’ve missed the first two [games]. One or two. Just based on the fact that it was during training camp. It is what it is. We’re here right now. It’s too late to do that. He’s fighting through pain; he’s playing through pain. That shows you the type of guy he is.”

Mayfield took to Twitter to issue an apology for his comments.
