It's an awfully tough first draw for the kid.
Agreed. I said the same thing last week. I don't care how good a pitchers stuff is, anytime you face the same team (especially a lineup the caliber of the Phillies) three or four times in a span of about three weeks, eventually they are going to figure something out. Hopefully Volquez proves us wrong.
