Gerrit Cole Day links

USA TODAY Sports

Happy Gerrit Cole Day, everybody. Some links:

-P- Jerry Crasnick writes about Cole's debut against Tim Lincecum and the Giants tonight.

-P- Danny Knobler writes about Cole as well.

-P- I saw Cole in Columbus two weeks ago.

-P- A nice piece on Russell Martin by Travis Sawchik at the Trib.

-P- Baseball America summarizes National League teams' drafts. In the Pirates section, second-rounder Blake Taylor wins more praise for his curveball.

-P- John Sickels summarizes teams' drafts in the NL Central.

-P- James McDonald makes a rehab start tonight for Indianapolis against Norfolk. McDonald's rehab outings have been a disaster so far. Wilbur sent me an email yesterday with the subject line "McDonald traded," and it jolted me a little bit. If the Pirates had traded James and not John, though, I'm not sure it would have been that big a surprise.

From David:

I had Tony Sanchez on my show yesterday. We discussed his season to date and, of course, Cole. Here is a link to the podcast. I will have Indianapolis manager Dean Treanor on today at 5:15 on 970 ESPN.
