You quite enjoy asking yourself questions eh? ;-D

Don't forget...

Lee LD% 17.3%

Volquez LD% 13.3%

so Lee has been pretty lucky thus far.

Yeah, I saw that when I was planning my roster for the rest of the week. I'd love to be able to watch that game. I think it is also an example of where MLB falls short - any other sport this game would be promoted and hyped as the showdown between the "young upstart" and the "veteran journeyman" looking to regain his 2005 glory.

Wow. Volquez' BABIP is actually sustainable? 8-o That's amazing. I knew he was pitching well, but considering the amount of free passes he gives away, I had no idea he was pitching this well.

Not giving up any home runs always helps.
