DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you saying the Reds "developed" Volquez in Spring Training? Isn't that giving them a tad too much credit?
(Ragnhild from Tromso)
No, I don't think it is. Pitchers are such complex messes that the smallest tweak can change things dramatically. One of my favorite baseball stories, which I'll severely shortcut here, involves Mike Morgan, who was the doormat of the AL for years. He got to the Dodgers and they moved him from one side of the rubber to the other. Suddenly pitches that batters took for balls were strikes, and he was a good pitcher for the next several seasons. (Steven Goldman)
2008-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)A Mike Morgan reference?! **shudder** As a Cub fan I danced a jig the day he and his "valuable innings" were traded. They could have gotten back an empty bottle of Thunderbird and that "blab about the Yankees" guy from earlier and I'd have said it was a steal!
(lpiklor from Chicago)
In 1994, yes, I wouldn't blame you for that, but he was also 34 and age was catching up to him. 1989-1992, he had a 2.91 ERA in 840 innings. His 1992 for the Cubs - he went 16-8 with a 3.55 ERA in 240 innings - ain't anything to complain about. (Steven Goldman)
