Volquez has been named
the opening day starter for the Padres.
I'm sure when the Volquez-Latos deal went down, we all expected it would be the former starting on opening day while the latter gets to sit back and relax, right?
In all seriousness, I guess Volquez has looked decent this spring, aside from his ever-present control issues. I still can't imagine why the Padres wouldn't start with Cory Luebke, Dustin Moseley or Clayton Richard instead, though.
