Re: Tracking - Alonso, Grandal, Volquez, Boxberger, Sappelt, Wood, Torreyes
I love how his name is in the title and he's still in the majors but nobody 'tracks' Volquez. I just went to his BR page and while I remembered his 2008 season being really good, it was even better than I remembered. Easily outpitched Harang and Arroyo and even managed to rack up 17 wins while striking out as many batters as a still healthy and dominant Johan Santana. He seemed poised to be the ace we see Cueto as now, but then came the arm injury and the PED suspension.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
