Who cares if he's the strike out leader when your job is to not get runs across the plate.

Not impressed with Cole this year, been much more impressed with Wade Miley despite the much lower K rate


Cole has pretty much the same xwoba as JV and is sporting a ridiculous xfip of 2.36. Buy stock in Cole's 2nd half.


Also LOLOLOLOLOL @ AggieEE


To be fair, back when he was sporting a 4 something ERA he wasn't very impressive. His fastball location wasn't very good leading to tons of HRs

Obviously I'm thrilled he's turned it around.

I'm going to disagree. He was unlucky. His fastball stats show he was effective early too.

His command now with the fastball is a lot better than earlier in the season. More movement and not sitting there over the middle of the zone. It wasn't just luck, hitters were sitting on his fastball and managing to take it yard due to poor location

Seeing his performance last night versus back in April shows a marked improvement

On the Greinke trade topic, who are the teams we could legitimately trade him to? There can't be that many that could absorb his contract.


After he goes 4-0 this postseason with a 0.75 ERA

No one will be dreaming of trading him

Zack had to work a little extra in that inning. Needed 13 pitches to get the 3 outs. Do better Zack...
Needed 14 this inning... clearly regressing. Get back on your game Zack
Good job Zack. Back on track with only 12 pitches needed that inning. Trending back in the right direction. Keep it up.

You don't trade ZG. He's making like 20 mil a year for us and is elite.

If anything there may be an argument to trade Correa IF the haul is fills more of a need.

Yep. Servais is a ****ing tool. Nothing was about the pitch. All about disrupting rhythm. Bush league.

Well needed 13 again this inning. You are laboring a bit Zack. You are better than this.
