Some experts and mock drafts have the Pirates picking up Gerrit Cole in the MLB 2011 Draft. At this point I would have to disagree. After reviewing some stats of Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer, I have come to the conclusion that Bauer is a far better pitcher than Cole despite not having the fastball Cole has.
Here is Bauer stats:
W=9 L=2 ERA=1.43 GS=12 CG=6 IP=100.2 BB=30 SO=154 K\9 =13.8 (He also had 1 game where he SO 17)
Here is Cole stats:
W=5 L=5 ERA=3.25 GS=12 CG=3 IP=83 BB=16 SO=86 K\9=9.3
Should I feel differently?
Who should the Pirates Draft Bauer or Cole?
Bauer (14 votes)
Cole (18 votes)
