San Francisco announcer's tone and lack of enthusiasm for Cole's debut has been amusing. There have been quite a few "he's just like any other player" quips. Started saying early how he is a one-dimensional pitcher (this was somewhat warranted with all of the fastballs he was throwing), before he just retired the Giants side on about 6 pitches just now in the fourth they recapped his highlights so far and when they showed Cole's family going crazy after the RBI hit, they lackadaisically mention "well, it's a big day for him. It's a big day for any player who makes it to the majors" and "it's always a good thing at least to make it to the majors". Maybe it's just the fact that the tone of their voices are generally very laid back but it does seem to me they are a bit defensive to credit him since he isn't racking up Ks.



I thought the same thing. Very smug announcing team.

I want to line up the offense and three-stooges slap the lot of them.

But for Cole, this is a 0-0 game. The hitting is terrible.


I nearly lost my mind when neither Snyder nor Jones advanced runners in the first and third innings last night. Nothing like helping out the rookie pitcher on his big night.
And . . . what the f--k was Marte thinking last night when he ran into a tag out at 3rd base in the first inning? Vacuous.

I thought that as well but . . . (1) have your head in the freaking game and (2) even with 2 outs, why would you run into an easy tag? Its Cutch at bat . . . even a slightly off throw might have Cutch being safe. Marte must make the fielder throw the ball. That's Pony League fundamentals.

I am far more tolerable of physical mistakes. Mental mistakes? Drive me batty. Especially at that level and particularly on issues that are complete no brainers.

Yes it was a really stupid play with no plausible explanation. His mind was obviously elsewhere.

I have a plausible explanation, and I think it's the right one. I think he lost track and thought there were two outs.
