Fantasy Roundup: Cole Is Really Good

Cole pitched better than his stat line (6 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 10 K) indicates, and even that looked pretty good (Photo: David Hague) Gerrit Cole pitched much better than the four runs (three earned) in six innings would indicate. One run was scored on a defensive error, another on a wild pitch and another on a play at the plate where the runner was clearly out, but the home plate umpire...

Gerrit Cole is a legit ace for the Pittsburgh Pirates

Flamethrower Gerrit Cole led the Pirates to a 12-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. The 6-foot-4, 220 pound Cole (10-7, 3.22 ERA), who started for the first time since losing the deciding Game 5 of the NL division series to St. Louis last October, yielded two runs over seven frames and raved about catcher Russell Martin. “I think it was...

Gerrit Cole "primed for big season"

Earlier today I saw an article from a scouting website that said that Gerrit Cole was "primed to have a big season". The article included an interview with Cole, which I am almost positive the entire article was based off of. I would know more about it, but it was one of those stupid sites where you have to have a paid membership just to read their stuff and nobody'...

Gerrit Cole's 2014 season outlook

The fantasy community is always eager to unearth the next superstar, and as a result you may find some of the young arms we saw flash excellence last season become pricier than they should be on draft day. With that said, we look at two 23 year old pitchers who played a big role in their team’s trips to the post season last year – with the squads facing off against each other...

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole caught picking his nose, eating boogers (GIF)

Well, that’s pretty gross. Actually, the sight of Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole going full bore while mining for nose gold as he sits in the dugout during what likely was Sunday’s game against the Miami Marlins is gross enough if that’s all that happened, but what he does with what he extracts from his [...]The post Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole caught picking his nose...

Gerrit Cole hits 100 mph multiple times

On Friday night Pittsburgh Pirates rookie right-hander Gerrit Cole made his third career start and notched the third win of his young career. The No. 1 overall pick from the 2011 MLB Draft was excellent yet again, and repeatedly lit up the radar gun. Cole hit 100-plus mph on the radar gun a whopping eight times during his 6.1 innings of work. To put that in perspective, all the rest...
