Prospects Plus: Cole Tucker

Name: Cole Tucker
Position: Shortstop 
Team: West Virginia Power
Organization: Pittsburgh Pirates
Organizational Rank: eighth ranked prospect in the Pirates system, according to Baseball America 
Last Friday vs the Blueclaws: 2 for 4 with a double. 

Positives: Tucker looks the part of a middle infielder. He showed many of the skills that made him a first rounder back in 2014. He has great baseball IQ, including saving a run by gunning a guy at home. Sure he is going to take time but it may be worth it in the end. He looked like the best player on the field on Friday night. 

Negatives: Tucker is never going to be a big time offensive player. His baseball IQ is going to play at any position if he has to be moved off shortstop.

Fore: One of the best I've played

Every time we come down to Williamsburg to visit my aunt and uncle I make it a point to play golf with my uncle. So on Monday the two of us played the Goldenhorse Gold course and it did not disappoint. My uncle is a member at the Golden Horseshoe. 

I would agree with the sign below. 
The 16th hole is the photogenic hole of the two. 
While the 17th is a beast of a hole. One of the hardest I played. 
The Golden Horseshoe Gold Coures is one of the best I've played. In my top five. I broke a 100 so I'm happy.
