The Future's Getting Clearer

I ain't got no girl pregnant or nothing, but I have a good idea just in case...

Edinson Van Exel Spieser.

To quote Goldie Wilson:

"I like the sound of that."

But anyway, when Volquez learns to consistently throw strike one...sky's the limit. It's hard to imagine Volquez getting much better, but anyone who has watched him knows there's plenty of room for improvement. Think about that. He's 3-0 with a 1.21 ERA, with more strikeouts than innings pitched, and his ceiling is significantly higher than his current level.

Which is a good thing. Had Volquez merely been average so far, I'd probably have already jumped off a cliff. Because Josh Hamilton is currently tied for the Major League lead in RBI.
