Sure, Gerrit Cole was brilliant. Sure, Yu Darvish was just a notch short of Cole-level brilliance. But seriously? This team can't push across a single run? Someone named Jim Adduci is starting in a critical game in September? Lance Berkman has six plate appearances since he decided he wouldn't retire because the Rangers needed him?

This is the third time this season that Yu Darvish has lost a 1-0 game. But, no, it's all Yu Darvish's fault.

Friends, I don't think the Rangers' offense is very good.

Player of the Game: But for real, though. Gerrit Cole.
