Video: Pittsburgh Pirates Starling Marte Has A Cannon

"He learned the hard way Starling Marte has an accurate arm."

Pittsburgh Pirates rookie Starling Marte made Paul Goldschmidt look silly last night. Marte is a life long centerfielder. it’s hard to fathom that he hasn’t played the corner outfield spots much more than this season at AAA. If the kid keeps this up, there might need to be serious conversations about Andrew McCutchen sliding to his left. It’s always been rumoured that Marte was a strong defender, now he’s showing it on the world’s biggest stage.

Cue that fancy Olympics music.

    Can we please get a gif of Neil turning around with the ball, looking at Goldschmidt? That is too damn funny.
