Gerrit Cole seemed to be trending back up in his last couple games, and the hope was that he could get the Pirates off to a good start to this key stretch on the road against the division….but uh, that didn’t happen. There were some bloopers and bleeders and some bad plays on defense, but Cole was largely  ineffective and hit hard early.

Hard to say what the problem was other than the Brewers just being aggressive and getting to him quickly. It’s fair to be a little concerned about the Pirate ace as he hasn’t been great in the second half and they appear to be headed to a one-game situation where they’ll need to rely on him against another great pitcher. He’s also pretty much in uncharted territory in terms of workload. But I don’t think there were any particular signs of fatigue, stuff not being sharp, etc…just a tough night on the road. I hope.

Equally irritating was the Pirates’ inability to get things going against Jimmy Nelson, who has quickly developed into a Pirate Nemesis. John Wehner on the TV broadcast was constantly pointing out how Nelson was making a ton of mistake pitches and yet nobody seemed to be able to take advantage. It sure does seem like the general approach on offense takes a turn for the worse once the Bucs get down by a couple of runs. You see more big swings, less patience, etc. There were a couple of big swings – solo shots by Pedro, Ramirez, and Kang, but it was far too little, too late.

This whole NL Central thing has to stop. It just has to. Right? RIGHT?
