Sure, you’d like to see Cole dominate but he has a lot of work to do for a kid with his stuff and college experience.  We know this. To me just on one viewing and from what I’ve read he likes to throw all his pitches, maybe to his detriment. When you throw 98-100 you don’t really need to be perfect all the time but he throws a lot of other stuff up there. He threw just as many secondary pitches as he did 4 seamers and that is too much when you throw that hard. Plus, as you said the command…if you can throw strike one at 99 down and you have a good slider and changeup you really don’t need to be anywhere near the middle of the plate for the rest of the at bat. Throw it outside or up or down and make them chase.  He is not there yet.
