Call me crazy but I'm still not willing to write this game off. I'm going to do my mojo dance! LOL

F how he falls off the mound.

I hate how he can't get anyone out.

He's awful and damn near useless.

Cole's night went off the tracks in the 1st inning when the umpire didn't give him the call strike 3 on a 99mph FB that was well within the zone. He's done the same thing before in other games.
He's got really good stuff. Needs work between the ears.

If we would string together hits then this game would be about 9-6 right now

Can't advance any of these leadoff or 1 out doubles

Wonder if we should sign Keuchel to a short term deal? That would allow us to bolster the pen by moving Peacock...I think our Pen is GREAT with Pressly or Osuna, but is REALLY concerning beyond that.

Im guessing by now if Dallas wanted to be here he would

He has come in top 5 for the CYA 2x. He had a bad start it happens.

Nightly on here people make broad and totally incorrect assumptions based on tiny samples, but this is just about the dumbest one yet.

Both teams have 10 hits. That might be the most frustrating thing about this 9-4 score

George didn't miss that one. That ball was smoked.

Sorry, Harry. Why don't you tell me where I am wrong rather than just broad accusations?

I did, and it wasn't a broad accusation, it was a specific one.

Cole is one of the best pitchers in the game and is very mentally tough. You don't achieve what he has over this long of a period of time because you are weak between the ears.

So far Verlander and Cole have fallen short of expectations while McHugh and Peacock have exceeded expectations.

Would've never thought that's how things would work out.

If Verlander kept this up for the rest of the season he'd go 21-0 with about 270 Ks.

Peacock has made 2 starts, one of them was horrendous.

I didn't say he was "weak between the ears". I said he needs work to take a negative into a positive.
He's an extraordinary talent. I said that.

You must have had unbelievably high expectations for Verlander.

That's not at all what you wrote, but walk it back a little more and you'll be a little closer to reality.

Pretty sure we're just feeding Cole bad scouting reports so he'll have a few rough outings, which will scare off some FA suitors and we can retain him for cheap

are we talking about the same Justin Verlander? Cuz he's 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA right now (under his career average of 3.39 ERA)

I will say I didn't realize his ERA was at 3.00

Just hasn't been the sharp, dominate JV I'm used to.

Seems like he has been struggling with commanding his FB and just kinda grinding a bit.

And yeah maybe my expectations are pretty high.

Just awful giving up 5 in the first to that scrub team. Cole needs to get his head out of his ass pronto.

He did get 5 outs that inning

Should have been 3 runs at worst

Cole claiming he saw he was tipping his pitches during post game analysis.
