Volquez Shines as Royals Blank Yankees, 6-0

To this point in the season, starting pitching has been the only question mark about the reigning A.L. champion Royals.

Are the Royals and their B-BOAT (Best Bullpen of All-Time) re-inventing the game?

The end of the dead ball era and the rise of the homerun – thanks to Babe Ruth – slowly changed bullpen usage. It maxed out between 1974-1984 where five relief pitchers won a Cy Young. These men essentially pitched whenever a game was on the line, averaging 73.4 games, a whopping 133 innings (twice what a closer might throw today), 9.8 wins and 28.8 saves. Things began...
