On location: Cole, Grossman in fall ball

MESA, Ariz. — Spending the day with the Pirates’ top prospects in the Arizona Fall League, Gerrit Cole and Robbie Grossman, and just happened to get Grossman’s leadoff home run on video …

    KLaw sez Robbie’s gonna be a Top 100 prospect!

  4. JAL says:

    Cole goes 3–2 hits, 0 runs 1 walk 3 K threw 53 pitches 33 for strikes. Nathan Baker replaces him to start 4th

  5. Drew71 says:

    those six fans clapped pretty loud.

    you know. for six fans.

  6. Milo Hamilton says:

    Don’t you think it’s risky stretching Cole out to 3 innings already ? I certainly wouldn’t want him to hurt himself.

  7. Josh says:

    Those games look about as popular as a Marlins’ game.

  8. Steve Smith says:

    What, NO hated Manatees this Spring? Any back story on that?

  9. basballhabib says:

    Nice outings for all 3 buccos farmhands. Cole, Baker & Colla

  10. JAL says:

    5 Pirates in game so far–3 pitchers combined for 7 innings giving up 3 hits, 1 run, 4 walks, and 7 strikeouts only run a solo homer off Colla.

    Grossman 2-4 with 3 RBI and Cunningham has a double in 3 at bats.

  11. Drew71 says:

    Bier-man’s latest story has the details about Manatee not being on the schedule…the facts but not the reason. The reason may not be known yet, but I hope we learn what it is.

    Pirates had played the Manatees for 13 consecutive years. Pirates are going to donate some of the proceeds to the Florida State College education fund. Those are some of the facts that were in the story.

    I’ll miss those crazy, dreaded Manatees. Attended that game last year…thought it was a nice tradition.

  12. JAL says:


    Looking forward to your thoughts on the 5 Pirates who played today.
