    If he was a Cardinal, he'd be throwing with 5 mph more velocity by now.

    Duncan's deal with the devil on baseball's crossroads looms large.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    I wouldn't panic just yet. I'd be more upset if he had continued to pitch through the whole year like a lot of guys would have. That's how you get blown out elbows. Shut him down for this year, and he should be ok for this year, if tendinitis is all it is, and I'm sure he's had a MRI.

    Volquez to have surgery

    RHP Edinson Volquez will have right elbow surgery Monday, the Reds just announced. On the DL since June 2, Volquez yesterday complained of elbow stiffness and soreness after throwing 20 pitches of a scheduled 80-pitch simulated game.

    A prognosis for recovery will be determined after Monday's surgery, the Reds said. From here, it would seem we have seen the last of Volquez this season. We'll get comments from the clubhouse, which opens at 3:40 p.m. to the media.


    Not a good sign for a team trying to go all in for the 2010 season.

    I bet he's out for at least the beginning of 2010. I can see it now.

    "We arent worried about our pitching, we have Volquez coming back" when asked why we didnt go and get a starting pitcher.

    If it is Tommy John surgery, he will be out until at least this time next year, or so I have read.

    Not TJ. Exploratory. Let's just hope all goes well. We're due for a break.

    Pretty apparent at this point that Homer's splitter needs work.
