NOTES: So, you may have noticed the matchup. It's pretty good. Cole vs. Marshall pits New York's first pick from 2008 against its sixth-round pick from the same year. In between, the Bombers took Scott Bittle (unsigned), David Adams, Corban Joseph and outfielder Chris Smith. ... This is Adams' third start at the hot corner. He didn't field a grounder in his first game. ... Defensive coordinator Torre Tyson is still here. ... Abe Almonte was scheduled to play in the GCL again today but the game was rained out. ... Cody Johnson took BP today for the first time since blowing out his hamstring in mid-June. 

I'll have tons of video of Marshall, Cole and whoever strikes my fancy. I'll have a large feature on Cole in tomorrow's Trentonian, so look out for that in addition to my gamer.
