Good Going Kid!!!!

The New York Times reports that Yankees' first-round draft pick Gerrit Cole will attend UCLA instead of signing with the team. He's a Scott Boras client, but has reportedly decided to attend college no matter what the Yankees offer. That's the story, at least. Cole grew up a Yankees fan and hung around in their hotel lobby in Arizona during the 2001 World Series, but apparently he'd rather go to UCLA. The Yanks will get a compensatory pick in next year's draft.

MY TAKE ON THIS: I am speechless on this matter. The kid has guts, I can say that much for sure. Scott Boras...NY Yankees? Probably would rather play for a top-flight organization... The Red Sox?
