Not at all.

One of Volquez' great qualities is that he doesn't lose his confidence. That's why he's going to be an ACE for this rotation.

Springer gets a K and gets out of the inning.

Russ Springer will get the next call-up.

Fisher has to pitch well or he won't be here long.

Jordan Smith needs to pitch well, too (has been poor the last two weeks) or he'll be sent down.

everybody please pray for huston street, he was taken off stretcher after being hit by a linedrive. GODSPEED!!

He has hit in the pelvic area, I life or career threatening. From reading the article I think it may have been a shot straight to the cahones, it said he passed out 3 times.

I think it was some tightness in the shoulder...supposedly precautionary, but will have an MRI tomorrow nonetheless.

If you're coming off TJ surgery and have "NADA" yet you can go 3 IP and only surrender 3 runs, against a good offensive club, you're a pretty good pitcher. And how good is our bullpen exactly? A line of 3 IP and 3 R is something Nick Masset and Micah Owings dream of.

You said it yourself - dude is coming off TJ surgery. I am not anti-EV. Not at all. I just think we might have moved him up here ahead of schedule. He's all over the place tonight and was during his last start. No one is comparing Fisher to Cy Young, but I have more confidence in him to get outs than I do EV right now.

And Owings is irrelevant. He was sent to Luh-Ah-Vuhl.
