GERRIT COLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Lining up the Pirates’ rotation the rest of the way

Monday was the last off day of the regular season for the Pirates. With only thirteen games left, I think we’re at the point where we can reasonably look forward and see what the rotation could look like the rest of the way — since that will be a growing topic as the Wild Card game approaches. The Bucs still have to get there, of course, but let’s take a look at how things...

Some thoughts on a Monday morning that somehow sees the Pirates in a playoff position

Two hitters before Mercer, though, I saw Gerrit Cole up at the plate hacking away at Travis Wood and the thought that he was...

Tony Watson would later allow the inherited runners...

Game 137: Cardinals 5 Pirates 4

After Gerrit Cole allowed a single to Pete Kozma with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning, Greg Brown and John Wehner wondered aloud if it was odd that there was no one up in the Pirate bullpen. Cole had only thrown 85 pitches to that point and hadn’t encountered much resistance from the Cardinals since their two-run third inning until Kozma’s single, but the two of them...

Gerrit Cole and the difference of a week

One week ago, the Pirates were 64-55. They were 1 1/2 games behind the Brewers and in the first wild card position, 1 1/2 up on the Cardinals and 2 up on the Giants. They were a comfortable four games up on the Braves and Reds, and five up on the Marlins. All of this was despite being with Andrew McCutchen for over a week and with the knowledge that both McCutchen and Gerrit Cole...
