    Volquez and Ross

    not a good match and when Pole comes out to talk to Volquez, Pole leaves and Volquez is shaking his head no. It looked like Volquez had no confidence in either.

    Re: Volquez and Ross

    Volquez's recent struggles isn't because of Pole or Ross. He's right around the 100 inning mark and seems to be going through a tired arm stage. His velocity is down which makes his changeup ineffective. Toss in some tight strikezones along with a loss of velocity and it's a perfect match for bad results. I'd like to see him get a week or so of rest and see what it does for his velocity.

    I agree he's on fumes right now, but his facial expressions toward those two had me wondering a bit, he shook his head 3 or 4 times and walked off the mound after Pole left, then his next pitch was a curve that got shot thru the infield, by then he was spitting fire he was so mad.

    i hope its just a tired arm stage like OBM states. he really hasn't looked good in his last 3 starts. the biggest thing missing has been the strikeout.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    I think Volquez was shaking his head in frustration over his own stuggles rather than because he thinks Pole and Ross have no idea what they're talking about.

    Looks like whatever was said straightened him out?
