The New York Yankees lost another close game on Wednesday, this time 3-2 at the hands of the Los Angeles Angels.
Yet, some people are blaming the loss on him, somehow.
As Twitter user @YankeeWLRD states, Cole is the last person fans should be blaming for this one.
Cole had a quality start and stayed on the mound for seven innings: he allowed the bullpen to rest while keeping the Yanks in the game.
It’s definitely not his fault that the Yankees can’t consistently score runs.
“The Yankees just recorded 2 runs with 3 hits while making 2 errors in the field and there are real people blaming this loss on Gerrit Cole you can’t make it up,” he tweeted.

Cole has a 3.28 ERA this season and has already surpassed 200 strikeouts: he is currently at 204.
He is not having his finest season, but his numbers are very, very good.
He usually keeps the Yankees in games and the numbers back that up.
The offense, on the other hand, has been a serious problem for weeks, even months.
When Aaron Judge isn’t producing, the whole unit struggles to put together rallies.
Defense has also been an issue at times.
That would be a good start to address some of the offensive and fielding issues on the team.
