So proud of young Mr. Cole! I love this: "Gerrit Cole had not come to let anyone down, he wasn't here to add another layer of baseball disappointment to a city a generation-deep in them. Instead, Cole blanked the defending World Series champion Giants through the first six innings of his Major League debut, earning the 8-2 victory and the city's gratitude."
Gerrit Cole's first batter faced in the Majors. Great start! Not a Pirates fan, but that place hasn't much to cheer about since the early 90s. Great to see some excitement this season. He drove in the first runs of the game, too!
This is interesting in that he was one of the names thrown around for us as an immediate point guard solution. His stats don't indicate a game-changer, but it's still a bit curios given our needs. Oh, and BTW, he's applying for a "sick grandmother" waiver.
Former Bruin and #1 overall pick from 2011 Gerrit Cole is set to debut against the Giants on Tuesday. Gets to face off against fellow Bruin alum Brandon Crawford.
The official site posted Ralph's recap but for some bizarre reason didn't also push it out via YouTube. Whatever. GO BRUINS.
