Volquez changeup is sick on many different levels, the difference in speed, the location he can throw it with, the tumble on it.... then there is the fact that his fastball might be coming at 97 MPH, oh wait, thats just an 81 MPH change that looks just like it. Crap.
I had heard rumors before that there was thought that Santana was tipping his change up. They said it was so good that even though he was tipping it players couldn't hit it. Can't remember where I heard that though.
