No Pirates yesterday so I had to find a new way to piss myself off.  I succeeded in this by watching “The Amazing Spiderman 2″. This movie makes the Pirates bullpen look good.  I liked the first one, what a kick in the dick the second was.  I won’t ruin this movie for you because I can’t.  Any spoilers would likely actually be helping you if they dissuade you from watching...

Dodgers 5, Pirates 2: Finally, Edinson Volquez Is Good For Something

When your offense is struggling what do you do? Well, you just find one of the worst pitchers in baseball, of course. Old friend (I guess) Edinson Volquez certainly fits the bill, and he provided just what the Dodgers needed: terrible, terrible pitching that’s conducive to offense. Volquez allowed 13 baserunners (10 hits) in 5.2 innings, allowing five earned runs, and was more...

Burnett and received two productive years from him. They took a seemingly broken Francisco Liriano and he had a fantastic year for them last year and even won a playoff game. Now, the expectation is...

Volquez said he chose #Dodgers over #Reds, #BlueJays, #Orioles, #Phillies and "a couple more." Said he's willing to start or relieve. — Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) August 30, 2013 There was a time in Cincinnati when many thought Edinson Volquez was going to be a star for years to come.
