"Can't wait for it to end. It's been mentally draining."

Oh, boy, that's gonna ruffle some feathers. That was a mistake, Cole.

Man, Cole is going to get his ass killed for his play and his quotes in the last 5 hours or so.

Cole needs a win tomorrow more than anyone so at least maybe he won't take as much heat for that as he should.

That was horrible.

If the reaction of my living room is an accurate sample, this isn't going to go over well.

I think I'm going to go to the batting cages. I'm debating whether to wear the Justin Upton name and number t-shirt the Diamondbacks gave me (for having a season ticket plan). The medium speed cage is a good representation of Cole Hamels' curveball!

EDIT: I've decided to wear my Werth shirt. I'm envisioning the day WERTZ is jacking his curveballs into the second deck.

Dear God, did he actually say that last one?

I can't believe you guys actually have the stomach to look at it.

Actually I didn't even her Cole talk, but it seemed like a good line.

The question was "Given the season you've had, are you ready for it to be over?"

A little better, but no, still really bad, that's gonna played in soundbite form quite a bit now.

He gave up tonight, plain and simple. Shut him down.

*sigh* Cole said "I did my job...for that inning" At no point did he imply that he pitched well after the 3rd inning

Yeh, I figured he was still the best bet for game 7, but not after reading those quotes. The last two are pretty bad, even if the phrasing of the questions were weird. His mental toughness is severely lacking at this point. He's always had it easy and he's not responding well to the adversity. Sit him down and start off fresh next year.

One of the biggest strengths of this team is the depth of the starting pitching. I suggest we use it.

If Cupcakes can come up big and win tomorrow, I still think we have a better than 50% chance over the last 3 games. Maybe I'm crazy, but that's how I see it.

By the way, Daulton thinks Cole just has a dead arm, and when they showed Cole's pitch to Petitte, Ricky Bo said "Have you ever seen a worse pitch than that?" and Daulton answered "Yeah, but I can't say on TV." and "He's still alive" possibly (likely) referring to Mitch Williams.

Absolutely. You certainly can't march him out there at this point.

I had a feeling he was going down the toilet upon seeing his reaction when the umps reversed the "camera HR"... like his fluffy dog crapped on the living room carpet or somethin'.
