Cole is dissatisfied

I guess he is in the right organization. Everyone here is dissatisfied!

Anyway, his pointed evaluation of his last start:

I wasn't tremendously efficient, I had a lot of walks, but I kind of got lucky at times when I made a pitch and they swung at it. Just made pitches when I had to," Cole said. "I was happy I got through five, it was only my second time doing that. The bullpen's been pretty taxed every time I went out there, and this time I gave them a break.

And: "I'm sick of walking people. I'll have to look at [my approach], it seems like it's a different thing every time I go out," Cole said. "I just have to get ahead [of hitters], keep that mentality."

Cole's problems can be fixed. He's not a Wilson or Oliver or Ollie Perez, pitchers who just can't repeat their deliveries. When he fixes these problems, we'll eventually see this rotation (if the team does not make any trades):

A.J. Burnett

Wandy Rodriguez

James MacDonald / Gerrit Cole

Charlie Morton

Francisco Liriano / Jeff Locke

We have seen much worse than this rotation since 1992.
