GERRIT COLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Winter meetings day 1: Let’s talk pitching

By Rob Biertempfel NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Let’s talk pitching. You don’t have to be Bill James to know that finding a veteran starting pitcher is the Pirates’ top priority this offseason. The rotation was their biggest disappointment last season. It doesn’t have to be a No. 1 guy. It’s about time Gerrit Cole starts to live up to his hype and fills that role. When I talked...

Pirates place Gerrit Cole on 15-day DL

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Now, star pitcher Gerrit Cole is going on the disabled list. The Pirates also intend to place RHP Gerrit Cole on the 15-day disabled list with...

Albert Pujols gave Gerrit Cole a ‘stern lecture’

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole caught an earful from Albert Pujols during Sunday’s game, but the Los Angeles Angels slugger would not say what it was about after his team’s 5-4 win. As Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com notes, Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun worked a full count in the sixth inning before lining out to first. For whatever reason, Cole stared Calhoun down after...

Pirates' Gerrit Cole asked to calm down at Pens-Caps game

The Pittsburgh Pirates dropped a fourth-straight game at home to the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs on Wednesday afternoon. Following the four-game sweep at home, members of the Pirates may have been ready to do something to take their mind off the sting of losing. What better way to do that than by taking in a postseason hockey game? Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole did just that as...

Gerrit Cole faces the Rockies

Gerrit Cole’s strong start against the Padres last week avoided a sweep in Petco Park and kick-started a solid turn of the rotation for the Pirates, with four wins in five games. Cole’s been solid ever since his rough first inning against the Reds in his first start. After Locke focused entirely on fastballs and changeups last night, I’m sort of interested to see how Cole approaches...

Gerrit Cole has hat knocked off by line drive (Video)

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole came no more than an inch away from a serious injury — and possibly worse — on Thursday afternoon when a line drive nearly hit him square in the face. It was Cole’s counterpart, Detroit Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann, who ripped the ball back up the middle. How close did it come to nailing Cole? It knocked his hat right off his head...

Gerrit Cole, Minus His Fastball

It’s tough to get an athlete to say much of substance in a postgame press conference. Without the benefit of a personal, one-on-one setting, and without much time for the player to gather his thoughts and reflect on his personal performance, more often than not a reporter simply could pick the cliché responses they’re most likely to hear out of a hat and arrive at a close approximation...

Arrieta-Cole, objectively one of best playoff matchups ever

Individual performances tend to be magnified in the postseason, and that is especially true of pitchers. While 16-18 other players appear in the lineups and many others will have profound impacts on the outcomes of games over the next month, the starting pitcher will likely have more influence over the outcome of a single game than any other player. Everything is magnified in the...
