    I know this wasn't directed at me, but I'll answer anyway. I wouldn't say they fixed him yet. Still way too early to draw any definitive conclusions. But, Searage is developing quite a track record. First Burnett, then Liriano, and people always forget that he is largely responsible for fixing Charlie Morton.

    I'll say this, I think Volquez has as good of pure stuff as anyone on the Pirates' staff, outside of Cole and MAYBE Liriano. With the news about Jameson Taillon today, they're going to need him.

    I saw this on ESPN the other day, the Pirates may not have 'fixed' Volquez but they are working on him & a few others:

    Yeesh, Derek Jeter just looked awfully bad displaying his fall-down range.

That's an amazing statement."

    *Braun hits a 3 run home run literally seconds later

    Baseball is so great

    Garret Jones just bunted successfully against the shift. I know it's not easy, but I'd like to see Bruce do that.

    Tanaka gives up a 3 run jack. It's still very early in his major league career, but so far he looks more like, say, Daisuke Matsuzaka, than Yu Darvish.

    He must have gone onto Redszone to see what Reds fans were saying about him, because since than he has been lights out.

    Harper and Werth for the Nationals have looked bad thus far this season, then tonight they both crush a 3-run HR and Grand Slam respectively. They were absolute shots that bought their team back into a game they won. It looked like the fans had just won the WS after the Werth HR. Fun times in WAS this summer I'm sure.

    It's funny, Dice-K's first few MLB starts were pretty impressive, Darvish was kind of shaky at first.
