    Volquez

    Off of ORG and Lance's blog:

    Volquez told Julio Castro of the Dominican paper El Caribe:


    "They were offering me a contract for four years, the same as Johnny Cueto, but I didn't feel it was right for me. I spoke with the lawyer and the general manager, and we all agreed on a single season," Volquez explained while in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic.
    "Having a good year this season is my mission. Depending on my performance, we'll seek a contract of at least four years with the team," he predicted. "I can't define the amount we're going to seek following the next year, but it's going to be for that quantity of years." And should he have second thoughts, the 27-year-old pitcher (three years older than Cueto) indicated that some manner of offer is still on the table, saying, "Things remain open in case I want to sign during Spring Training or in the middle of the season."

    From Lance's blog.
    I think he needs a new lawyer.

    I hear Volquez reached for that contract during the season but Walt shredded it quickly.

    Volquez stands a better chance of finding Sasquatch or Chupacabra than he does of finding that offer still lying on a table, waiting to be signed.

    That post was huge. I was dealing as I sat behind the keyboard. 5,000 posts is bigtime. My advice? Take them one post at a time and don't clog up your keyboard arguing with Cardinal fans.

    Thanks.

    Dusty named Volquez to pitch game one of the playoffs in 2010 and be our Opening Day starter.

    Good thinking, eh? Speaks volumes.

    Dusty has already named Matt Maloney opening day starter in 2012.

    Going into that game you have to admit EV had pitched very well towards the end of the season and really did it matter WHO pitched that first game for the Reds, I mean he could have thrown a 1 run/1 hitter and still it wouldn't have been good enough.

    As for opening day, Cueto and Homer were both on the DL, Bronson said he didn't want to pitch, so that leaves you Leake or EV and I am willing to bet many here were not to confident in Leake. So what option did Dusty have?
