    I wouldn't say Cole has been a failure. A failure is someone who never does anything or even gets to the majors. If anything I'd say he's been underwhelming, which is something he's been ever since college.

    Cole reminds me of Jason Schmidt in that both guys have great talent but just aren't putting it together with the Pirates.

    When I say failure, I mean relative to expectations. I don't think anyone would agree that he's pitched to his potential outside of his one outlier season. The real abject failure here is Neal Huntington. His draft results have been downright horrendous no matter how many Prospect handbooks have fellated him over the years.

    Cole's career numbers are better than Quintana, whom everyone wanted to trade for as The Missing Piece.

    Cole's numbers this year are high simply because his HR rate has doubled. I think bailing on Cole would be an overreaction. Trade him if you are blown away, but the idea that Cole is a mediocrity isn't supported.

    Gerrit Cole has been an abject failure as a former top draft pick. 2015 was the exception, not the norm. He's been the definition of mediocrity every year other than 2015 and another in the long line of failed Neal Huntington draft picks.

    I wonder how Trevor Daley feels about ESPN's obsessive coverage of Subban, his antics, and race issues in the NHL?

    ESPN doesn't cover hockey all year and they focus on this shit? Seriously?

    Good crowd tonight for a nationally-televised holiday weekend primetime game...

    The crowd reflects the quality of the onfield product.

    This team and management blow.

    Despite Anderson playing very well, the Pens were absolutely hosed last night.
