I'm watching the game. Volstad wasn't top of his game, but he was definitely good. After the first inning he really cooled down, stopped showing dissapointment and anger on the mound, and just went with it. He wasn't getting all his calls but he was spotting the ball decently and his pitches had great movement on them. His curve was killer.
I think Volstad's a great value pick. I'd buy low. But then again, the Nats are hardly the be-all end-all of hitting.
