    Default AL Predictions

    Why not get these going?

    Yep hard to disagree when they will have Verlander / Cole going twice if needed.

    Grienke, Verlander, and Cole's salary combined make like 13mill more than all of the TBRays, that's crazy.

    Haha wow.

    The Astros are the ideal scenario for the Jays. Three studs acquired from other teams to help their homegrown offense.

    Well I hope the Astros can close this out today so they don't have to waste Cole going Game 5. Everyone wants it. Astros vs Yankees.

    Mostly because I don't want the Yankees in the World Series.

    Of course. No one does. Especially because, given their injuries this year, it was really an amazing performance all season. Bugs me.

    He had like 4 hits that had an exit velocity of 100mph+ in the first inning, first time ever in his career. He was def gassed. So he pitched 100pitches on Oct4th, prolly had a days rest on 5th, he did a BP session on 6th, was off 7th, and pitched yesterday. I don't think he's ever pitched on 3days rest too.

    However, the gamble makes sense. You try and use Verlander to end the series up against a BP game from the Rays. Then have Cole saved for the next series. The gamble didn't work, but you have insurance in Cole going at home tmo.

    It sucks that "tipping pitches" was the reason why Houston won as a fan. But as a team, it really flexes your muscles. They really showed their hitting intelligence.

    Good growing experience for Glasnow though.

    Can Cole win Cy Young AND a Playoff MVP award? He is unreal. Hope he goes to LAA so Trout can finally do some playoff damage.
