Get To Know Him - Jeff Locke

The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had a winning season since 1992 but things are starting to look much brighter in Pittsburgh.  Last year the Pirates flirted with a winning record, but had a rough September and finished 79-83.

Gerrit Cole Wins MLB Debut

With the first overall selection of the 2011 MLB draft, the Pittsburgh Pirates took UCLA pitcher Gerrit Cole.  The Yankees had drafted him at the bottom of the 2008 first round but he refused to sign...some have to wonder what was going through his mind at the time.  It took Cole just 200 minor league innings to make his debut and he looked good both pitching, and swinging the...
