Yesterday Travis Sawchik was a guest on my show. If you missed his article on Gerrit Cole over the weekend, it is a must-read. We discussed Cole at length, how Clint Hurdle should manage Pirates starters Charlie Morton and Jeff Locke who both recently had very effective starts blow up on them in a matter of batters and talked about the Pirates infield defense and what they should do when Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer return. I really enjoyed it, hope you do as well.
As a programming note I will have Pirates pitching guru Jim Benedict on my show on Wednesday at 5 pm on 970 ESPN.
