112.1 innings, 4.33 ERA, 1.42 WHIP
If you are going to be presenting a case based on numbers, Volquez is likely to lose. Now, is anyone going to really take Ohlendorf over Volquez moving forward? Doubtful. But he deserves the money he is getting. The guy has been a pretty solid pitcher the last two seasons.
