Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole is the latest to speak out against the use of an opener.  He called the latest fad a math equation and added that he wouldn’t pay to watch it.

Cole’s criticism of the use of an opener comes after it was revealed that Giants ace Madison Bumgarner wasn’t a fan.  He warned his manager that he would leave the ballpark if an opener was used before he took the mound. 

It’s good to see players aren’t fans of the use of an opener.  There are a lot of forces working to change the entire way the game of baseball is played.
