While Volquez has been fine, Hamilton was supposed to be substituted by Bruce. Instead we got a lot of Patterson with some Hopper sprinkled in.
In addition, Volquez's success made Bako our main catcher, instead of just an injury fill in.
Who would have started if no Volquez? Affeldt? Maloney? Justin Lehr? Shearn? The $3 mm used for Patterson could have bought something, I guess.
Who knows, maybe it wouldn't have been so bad.
It's spilt milk, sure...and I'm crying.
