Time To Jump On A Bandwagon (NL Edition)

It’s August 23rd. As I type this it’s August 22nd but by time you are reading it, it is August 23rd. As a Padres fan, the date is inconsequential.

Game 126: Padres 2 Pirates 1

This is admittedly overly-reductive and entirely unfair, but in a way, Felix Pie's Pirate debut was actually decided by Felix Pie before any of his Pirate teammates -- the teammates that have made up the Pirates entirely without him this year prior to tonight -- contributed anything to this game at all. Pie lead off the game with an infield single (punctuated with a needless...

Gerrit Cole has cut down on the walks recently, but needs to add some strikeouts. At the start of the year, the expectation from most Pirates fans was for Gerrit Cole to go to Triple-A as a formality, just long enough to get an extra year of control and avoid Super Two status.
