Hanson needs to stay at SS for as long as possible, but the Pirates have some very young talent at that position such as Dilson Herrera, and the HS kid from Florida that we drafted last year. Is it a good time to hire a middle infield coach to spend more time with these kids?

Big difference there. His big issue (as it was at times in college) is that it seems his command strays and he gets hit more than a guy with his stuff should be. I think he’s going to have some growing pains. Which is why he won’t be up yet, but he has showed signs that he’s going to be pretty good. As WhAngus says, he’s not Strasburg, and those types are rare.

One hint: It isn’t good.

Tim’s nice enough to cover the top 20, but there is so much more in his prospect book. I reference it constantly.

He might not miss as many bats as Felix Hernandez, but Cole could end up being one of the biggest work horses in baseball. That part really excites me about his potential.

.
cole’s numbers are more than okay. and also remember this: he gets stronger as the game gets longer. hes a legit #1 prospect.
.
that being said, i understand you wanting him to get more seasoning. the Bucs wont bring him up early anyway so this discussion isnt really going anywhere.
