Even in a game seven of the WS, chances are this USA lineup will be better, or at minimum even, so I wasn’t really going out on a limb there.
If you want to think about the game seven situation though, why isn’t Cole starting? :)

John; I hope you’re wrong. I hope he does in game 7 of the 2016 World Series !

I think that was right around midnight by the time editing was done, so that is why it says tomorrow…I’ll change it now to avoid further confusion

I really want to see how he handles a pressure situation against a big lineup. He isn’t going to see a better lineup in a “win or go home” situation, possibly ever again. As a Pirates fan, you want to see him calm on the mound and get through at least three. The batters in the WBC seem to be patient, knowing the pitchers have pitch limits and most teams aren’t that deep in the pen. So he needs to throw strikes early
