Start Volquez against Brewers?

Postby bsoates » Thu Mar 31, 2011 12:25 pm

I know historically he has faired pretty well against the brew crew... but he' s had some control issues in spring training. What do you guys think?

I say no. Volquez either has it or he doesn't. he's one of the most talented pitchers out there with stuff but is an extreme head case. i'd give him a start on the bench to decide whether to start him his next time on the mound because he could easily issue 5 walks in 3 ip and give up 7 runs or something but if he has a solid start he tends to string together at least a few more before going back to being a head case. I'm fairly conservative though. Would you start Stauffer today @ st. louis? His only start there last year he got hit pretty hard. im on the fence.

Thanks for the advice. I agree the Stauffer decision is a tough call; I considered picking him up for the day in my league. My gut is telling me to sit him though; especially if you consider yourself to be pretty risk-averse. If it were at Petco I would definitely give him the nod though
