This guy is darn good. You can sell him "high", but IMO you are not going to get fair value for him. Keep Volquez he is LEGIT. Many people are waiting for the sky to fall on this guy, but I bet they have not seen this kid pitch, his stuff is excellent. Its about time people think about not trading Volquez away, what people should be thinking is how in the heck can they trade for Volquez????????
Yeah, I totally agree, I don't think you can sell this kid right now, you're just no going to get fair value. I tried shopping him a few weeks ago and no one was biting. I'm glad, because since then he just keeps getting better. He's now got 74 Ks in 60 innings. Unbelievable. Combine his K/9 rate of over 11 with that GB% and I see no reason why he can't keep this up. I mean obviously it's foolish to think he's going to keep up the sub-2.00 ERA, but I see no reason to believe that he won't be among the top few pitchers in the league at the end of the year if he keeps his GB% up like this.
