See it in Volquez’s eyes or when he is chewing that gum on the mound, he has that "I am" and "I will" attitude of an athlete.
Armstrong looked to me like he belonged in a business suit when watching him pitch, this kid Volquez is a ball player.
Spring, you can't really be this old.....watched Armstrong pitch.....are you kidding me?
He is certainly a pitcher who is showing signs of NOT being a 30 start competitor at this point in his career. But I think that is to be expected.
It is going to be interesting (now that my best friend Corey is a nech player) to watch what happens to Volquez and Cueto come the end of August. Can they hold up?
Anyway, I think the point of your thread is a very good one. The field is certainly not a level one. However, it also shows that MAJOR league baseball consists of one 6 team division......the rest is all fodder (or the Minor leagues) from which, for a year or two apiece, a team is chosen to show up in the standings with the big boyz......it's your turn Rays, enjoy!
