Well you get the extra year of control if you call him up in the 3rd week of April when you 1st need a 5th SP. The whole June thing only effects his arbitration clock.


And that has a big impact on cost. I have no problem with waiting until June... unless, of course, the Pirates suffer a slew of pitching injuries.

Yeah but a cost of an extra $5 million in 6 years time is minimal if it means more wins and thus attendance now. I agree that he could use some AAA time, but if he dominates in April, I have no issue with bringing him up in May. Also, since this is a pitcher, there is some benefit to getting MLB innings while he is healthy as opposed to banking on 7 years like a position player.

My comment was sarcastic. I have become very patient as I've grown older and am perfectly willing to let the Pirates decide when the best time to bring Cole up would be.

But it is that much of a stretch to see him being part of a solid rotation as we contend in August and September of this year? I don't think so. But of course it could break completely the other way too. This is the Pirates after all.
