Verlander and Cole had the tools though. Coles turn around doesn't surprise me at all. What is their stadium like? Pitchers park?
Most of them has had an increase in velocity. Take a CHarlie Morton throwing harder at 34 than he did when he was younger. Going to be tough to get past them in playoffs. Astros can throw out 3 of the best starters in baseball.
