Good to be careful in this part of the lineup, have to get Adames now though.

TB yapping a lot that inning, as is their right. Fun game already.

Cole yelling at the TB dugout, maybe that'll get him more focused.

Got to drive it if you're swinging 3-0, big man. Even your godlike self.

I just don't get why they aren't trying to make him work more. This isn't gonna go well at this rate.

His stuff is as good as anyone's in baseball and they have seen him four times already this year, I am guessing they have a more nuanced game plan.

If you can do damage on a few pitches early, you make the pitcher doubt throwing strikes and that is when you can really work ABs. I thought Hicks' ball was gone.

Good job Luke.

Alright, that's what I'm talking about.

The fact that he's throwing 100 consistently on 2 days rest is fucking insane.

Don't forget first game this series they did try to wait out Glasnow more and they scored 4 (all on Stanton HRs) but no one else had any success, they struck out 10 times in his 5 innings.

He wasn't on 2 days rest then. They need to get his ass out of there. Snell is much less intimidating than Glasnow.

Still 0-0, let's see ace-level Cole now. The middle of the TB order really sees him well, a 1-2-3 inning would be nice.

He barely threw a strike that inning except to Gio, very disappointing to let him get through it pretty easily.

Now I think is when NY starts working ABs as deep as possible, maybe they were hoping to do some early damage because Cole grooved so many first pitch strikes the first time through the order in game 2 but it did not work. Brett will lead us.

Guess I was wrong about Glasnow. So I guess they want Snell to start a clean inning.
