For a while now I've been wondering what Cole's record could have been. If he got the support from the offense in the close ones(ex. two 1-0 losses vs Mets). My criteria went like this: any game he gave up 2 or less runs against with at least 7 IP and he received a ND or the L. As we all know he is currently 9-10. With this formula he would've been 17-6. What a difference a little help from your friends can do.
P.S. Halladay (16-10) under the same theory should be 19-8.
P.P.S. Oswalt (10-13) should be 16-7, but all except one ND is the Astros fault.
