Gerrit Cole wears Boras Corp. hat after Astros’ World Series loss, tweets message to Houston fans

The Houston Astros 2019 season had not been over for long when impending free agent Gerrit Cole started removing himself from any future Houston narrative. The Astros, baseball’s best team during the regular season, came up short in their quest for a second World Series title in three seasons as they lost Game 7 of the Fall Classic to the Nationals on Wednesday night.

Cole, who did not appear in Game 7, watched the Nats celebrate their franchise’s first ever World Series win on Houston’s turf and then had to speak to the media. His postgame outfit did not include any Astros gear. Instead, the flame-throwing righty (who is represented by agent Scott Boras) donned a hat with a logo of Boras Corp.

...

The accessory said a lot.

...

Given Houston’s already high payroll, it always seemed unlikely Cole would return to the Astros once he hit free agency. That seemed more evident by his post-Game 7 fashion statement, and by a written statement he tweeted out Thursday. Cole sent a message, thanking Astros fans and the organization.

Wait- when did Scott Boras start distributing hats?

Barry Bonds throws Dave Roberts’ Dodgers hat during Bruce Bochy ceremony

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spent the final four seasons of his playing career with Bruce Bochy in San Diego and San Francisco.

So, when the Giants honored Bochy after his final game as manager Sunday, Roberts emerged from the visitor’s dugout at Oracle Park. But before embracing Bochy, Roberts ran out to greet his old Giants teammates from the 2007 through 2009 seasons.

After first, they welcomed him with open arms. Then they noticed he still was wearing his Dodgers hat.

With a career Rfield of 175, Bonds’ arm being strong should have been of no surprise…..
