The Pirates are in trouble

If we’re being honest, the Pittsburgh Pirates were always long shots to make the Postseason in 2016. In a division that features the powerhouse Chicago Cubs and the always dangerous St. Louis Cardinals, the Pirates’ chances entering the year were slim.

Gerrit Cole is now the most important Pirates player

Gerrit Cole might not be the best player on the Pittsburgh Pirates —Andrew McCutchen probably still holds that distinction — but over the course of the next 10 days, perhaps no pitcher in the National League, or perhaps in Major League Baseball, will have a greater impact on his team’s season.
