And he did what in his debut??? Exactly my point. Glad to see Cruz go and better arms on the roster. Cole should be next to replace Resop!

A rotation with Burnett, McDonald, Cole, Taillon, and maybe McPherson sounds great!

Burnett. I hope A.J. is still here when those two pitchers get on the big league team.
If A.J. retires to spend more time with his family after next year, as he has discussed, I hope the Pirates sign him as an instructor or coach to work with the team in spring training and in the instructional leagues.

He has made a difference with James MacDonald, and his old-school ways could only benefit the young prospects coming through the minors.

Love to see this. Now hopefully he finishes off the year strong and maybe sometime early next year we can get him up to indianapolis for a strong stretch. Then i’m hoping for a spring training invite and making the opening day roster in 2014. Not that I would be opposed to complete domination through the rest of the ranks and a call up about this time next year but that seems a little too optimistic haha ;)

And while I’m at it send me your measurments and I’ll pick one up for you.

I hope it is more of a function of what pitches he has thrown, rather than the ‘stuff’ of those pitches. I like the BB rate and I think it will actually lower going forward. The relative lack of Ks is a tad bothersome….

He has done all he should at AA and needs to be advanced. Then after getting this rediculous AAA assignment out of the way he can be promoted to the show where he belongs right now.
I’ve heard the arguments against – but if anyone is telling me that Cole – RIGHT NOW – is not better than Corriea, Karstens then your crazy. He may be better than the entire staff including AJ, it’s hard to know for sure until he gets his chance.
At the very least, since there are some concerns about his innings count, what would it hurt to have Cole and his 100+ heat in the bullpen? He could possibly be the most dominate reliever almost immediately upon his arrival – not that his future is there, but for this season it makes complete sense.

That’s the day he got hit with two line drives. I may stay away from watching JT….lol
