    Went to all of the Unit's Dome starts, the atmosphere was crazy electric, iirc his first 4 home starts were CG shutouts with double digit Ks

    Must’ve been amazing. Wish I cared for the intricacies of baseball in my youth.

    Greinke looks better. Not great but definitely better.

    Greinke is flirting with f***** up his ERA.... and the bully's usage rate.

    New league usually benefits the pitcher.

    He’s not sharp with his location.

    Moving from the NL to the AL almost never benefits the pitcher.

    His location is off. That isnt because he plays on the astros now. Also, his first start which was not good was against a NL team.

    Changing leagues has nothing to do with Gerrit Cole though. That has to do with going from a team that has historically had their pitches under-perform, to a team that recently has had their pitcher over-perform.

    The NL has the pitcher hit, and usually one or two easier out from out of their 7-8-9 spot. The AL has a DH, and for the most part, a much stronger and deeper lineup to pitch again. I don't think that can be argued at all, one league has a DH, and one league does not.

    Also some bad luck today with dinks and dunks and the easy double play ball he deflected while dodging the bat

    Cole also had a whole offseason and ST to work with the coaching staff and catchers

    He's given up 6 runs in 10 innings, it's ****ed already. Who cares?

    Then it has nothing to do with Greinke changing leagues either. Like i said, his location is off.

    Haha alright buddy. I honestly do not care enough to continue our back and forth. I've found that our games are so boring, a lot of posters have started bickering about silly stuff. And I'm not going to fall into that trap, so let's go with his location is off.

    Go Stros!
