How Does The Gerrit Cole Trade Look A Year Later?

Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   Back in January 2018, the Pirates decided to deal 2015 All-Star, and first overall pick in 2011, RHP Gerrit Cole. The return was somewhat questionable. They received 4 players in return: Joe Musgrove, Colin Moran, Jason Martin, and Michael Feliz. It raised some eyebrows because of the lack of a real headliner in the deal. Plus, they were asking for headliners from other teams interested like the Yankees and some of their top ranked youngsters. Regardless, it’s been over a year since the trade, so how does it look in April 2019? Gerrit Cole was one of the...

The Worst No-Hitter Ever Pitched

Posted by thedugoutonline Admin on

By: Mark Lester   Recently, a piece was published on The Dugout talking about some very interesting no-hit pitching performances facts. It it mentioned the time that Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter on LSD, Jim Abbott overcoming the lack of a right hand to complete a no-no, and, perhaps most surprising, Hideo Nomo completing a no-hitter in Coors Field. However, one particular no-hit performance for the ages wasn’t mentioned, and since it happened against my very own White Sox, I feel the responsibility to tell you about it. Three times in major league history, a pitcher has thrown a complete-game no hitter… and...
