 Mike Arbuckle - “If his ability is what we think it is, the opportunity will be here, sooner rather than later.

If there's a blessing out of him starting slow out of the chute this year, this may be it because in big-league camp, no matter what we told him, he was going to show up he should open in Philadelphia.

If his ability is what we think it is, the opportunity will be here, sooner rather than later.”
 Mike Arbuckle - “Any kid who's a competitor like Cole thinks he should be here the majors yesterday. I told him not to worry about what other people are doing. Just do your job, and if your ability is what we think it is, the opportunity will be there, and probably sooner rather than later.”
