Gerrit Cole absolutely shoved last night against the Orioles. Yeah I get it, it’s the Orioles. But their offense is somewhat underrated (7th in batting average, league-average OPS in 2020). And regardless of who it came against, it was a special performance from Cole.
Seven scoreless innings, 4 hits, 13 strikeouts, and no walks. We’ve seen a good amount of Cole starts in pinstripes at this point, but this is never gonna get old.
Cole pumping 101 down the plate & heading to the dugout before the ump even calls strike three makes me feel things. The Yankees finally have their first true ace since prime CC Sabathia, and it’s so damn fun to watch. Maybe Cole saw this clip where SNY tried to insinuate he wasn’t a true ace.
Imagine saying Gerrit Cole isn’t a true ace because he gave up leads in games where the Yankees scored 1 or 2 runs https://t.co/r9C1VfPJMz
