It's laughable that people actually think a starting pitcher is more valuable than someone winning the triple crown right now. It's absurd really.
That is such a crock. The umpires have been HORRIBLE all season for just about every single team in a lot of different ways. I'm fed up with them all ready and I hate that there's nothing anyone can do about it. :thumbdown
"I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
Volquez will have an awesome amount of W's by the end of the season.
I'm sick of Hamilton being brought up constantly by people looking to place blame on the ballclub. Volquez is the better bet in the long run. He's the top pitcher in the entire league right now and he's still really young and can get better and better. not only does he look amazing, but having that low of an ERA with THIS defense is absolutely incredible!
Let me say this. Hamilton is awesome. Volquez is awesome.
I hated the trade because of Volquez History when it went down. I still don't like the trade because I think Volquez, with his near 1-10 record could have been had for a lot less than our Great "Diamond in the Rough" Josh Hamilton...
Wayne Krivisky did a Great job of getting EV evaluated, but gee, I don't know... At the time, Hamiltons Numbers were far superior in his limited playing time, than Volquez's numbers at the same time. So I feel that we are just Lucky to have EV pitching this good.
