Need Cole to have his stuff tonight. Hasn't really had a game yet this postseason where he looked like he had the movement and command we've come to expect.


I mean I know the ALDS seems like a lifetime ago but got damn how can you forget Game 2 and 5


Haven't forgotten. He was an absolute work horse in those games, but he didn't have his best stuff.

Turner knows he's not gonna throw a breaking ball after he bounced the first one

That was an awful hanging slider. Didn't move at all.

Altuve likes to swing at the first strike. Just who he is.


It's funny because if he produces on pitch 1 everyone praises him but if he does that everyone ****s on him
Depends on the game situation. Need to make this guy work so we can burn both him and the bullpen up. One pitch, one out at bats aren't going to do that.

I expect dumb shlt from Altuve on the bases, but not at the plate. That was exceptionally horrible.
He's had a number of bad bats in the last couple of games that have choked off some potentially big innings.

He needs to grip on his bad self before it costs us some games.


They just said he is 4-6 after that out, when he hits the first pitch. I'll take that. Now only if he could lay of the slider 10 ft off the plate.

I guess my memory is just faulty. I remember him doing great against Tampa but seemingly without his best stuff. Guess I was wrong.

Cole with lots of fastballs thus far

Easier to foul off

Good job not losing any to walks

These guys can hit the fastball. That is all Eaton has.

Cole has to get the change working. They've been worse against pitching that can cut and sink in both directions.
titanmaster_race
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Cole and Maldy must have a game plan that's fastball heavy the first time through the order. Lots of fastballs, even on 2 strike counts.


Seems to be working though.

We should have learned by now that these guys don't swing and miss often. Time for Cole to genuinely pitch. And I think he will

Ok. She's gong to get to work.

Cole needs to get the slider working. He threw one that inning and got a strikeout on it, but it didn't move at all... really bad pitch.

Yordan needs to drop a bunt down 3b. It's the World Series.

Yordan is going to sign a trade deal between the baseball and the fans in the right field, fair territory bleachers this evening.

Yuge deal. Cuban bigly.
