Isn't this cole's second year as a pro. Contract-advantages aside, why don't we let him get to double digits in innings in AAA before giving him a rotation spot?

I have no problem with it. I'd like them to just admit why they did it tho instead of pretending we're all stupid but im used to that. Apparently Cole isn't too happy about it, but i havent heard or read what his comments were .


he basically said he thought he was ready. someone asked him if he thought it had anything to do with the service time issues and he dodged the question.

So Cole saying he thinks he's ready for the MLB = Cole being pissed we're optioned him?

Did people expect Cole to say he's not ready? Seriously?

He will be celebrating a pedestrian 5 yard catch on 2nd down with his 20 yard run downfield.

Seems pointless...a 38 year old middle infielder with no pop and no speed. Is this minor-league depth since d'Arnaud is out for 2 months?

I'd rather have McDonald than Harrison as the backup MI, if that's the end result of this. He's better defensively and offensively.

Kyle McPherson today- 4.2 IP, 10H, 9 R, 8 ER, 3 K, 2 HR allowed. And he was only the 2nd worst Pirate pitcher behind Vin Mazzaro-1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 2 HR. MATW is in midseason form- he allowed a 3-run HR in his one inning of work.

Is that why Dejan is raging on Twitter about shortstops?

@jayhoff01 I answer to my readers. I’m accountable. I’m here. If I had thin skin, I’d go hide somewhere.


Dejan's twitter.

Funny he says that after he blocked me.

-Blocked me for saying "good thing you weren't managing the Bucs or else they'd be 1.5 million dollars poorer" when they signed Karstens for 2.5

I don't understand how the Trib still employs him. I'd never buy that newspaper with him as a sports writer.

Honestly don't see what is wrong with Dejan. He's the only person more pissed off at the Pirates than myself and i rather enjoy that fact.

You know that line from The Big Lebowski, "you're not wrong, Walter, you're just an (expletive)"? Applies to Dejan lately when talking about the Pirates.
