The problem with Gerrit Cole’s slider (or, Game 116: Diamondbacks 4 Pirates 1)

It’s clear at this point that something’s not quite right with Gerrit Cole. In his last four starts, counting last night, he’s only thrown 23 innings, opponents are hitting .300/.354/.456 against him, and as a result, he’s got a 4.70 ERA. On a few nights he’s been dinged by awful Pirate defense behind him (the Cardinal start in particular) and perhaps as a result of that...

For the first time since August 2nd, the Pirates will play a team that’s not currently in line to be a National League playoff team.

Gerrit Cole looks to finally solve his Reds problem

Gerrit Cole’s excellent 2015 has come with three starts in which he didn’t pitch at least six innings. All three have come against the Cincinnati Reds, including the 4 2/3 inning shelling at the hands of the Reds back in June that might be his only legitimately bad start all season. Like much of the Pirates/Reds dynamic this year, I don’t really understand this. I suppose all...

Monday round-up: Gerrit Cole’s start, what to look for at the deadline

Watching Gerrit Cole develop this season has really been an interesting experience. In Cole’s first eleven starts, he struck out 79 hitters over 71 innings and had eight or more strikeouts five times. He was really dominant in those starts, with a 1.90 ERA and a .590 OPS against and a 61:16 K:BB. Yesterday was the first time in the nine starts since those first 11 starts that he...
