Gerrit Cole has been the most exciting pitcher to watch for the Houston Astros this year.

2018 Season Series #17: Houston Astros @ Cleveland Indians

It’s Deja Vu all over again as the Astros (32-18, 1st in AL West) begin a 4 game set against the Indians (24-23, 1st in AL Central) Recency Bias The Astros come into town winners of 3 straight and on a 5 series-win streak with a record of 11-3 during that time.
