There is potential there for a really strong staff if Wandy’s injury isn’t serious.

By: James Santelli Wed, 12 Jun 2013 03:11:28 +0000 D’aaaah. Thanks.

James, his hit was to right center, not left center.

By: piratesfan5 Wed, 12 Jun 2013 02:23:36 +0000 Many people say he has a plus change up we just didn’t see him use it tonight. But I’m with you I thought it was a very promising start.

By: Matt Beam Wed, 12 Jun 2013 02:14:32 +0000 very promising start, does Cole have much of a change-up? if he could ever develop that pitch, he’d be unstoppable as every thing he throws is hard so guys gear up and don’t really need to be honest, esp. if he’s not throwing that slider for strikes
