Hi, Hello And Welcome: Part Nineteen (Chris Welsh Edition)

Here's a portion of a 1st inning conversation between Thom Brennaman and Chris Welsh (speaking of Edinson Volquez):

Brennaman: "...with the league only batting .220 against him"

Welsh: "And he doesn't walk many."

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? Doesn't walk many? Does Welsh even watch these games? Does he have a computer? Because the Internet is reporting Volquez has walked a lot of batters this year: Heading into Friday's game Volquez is sixth in the NL in walks, and tenth in all of baseball.

My take: George Grande must have finally worn off on Welsh, because he was merely awful in year's past - now he's worse than that. Somehow.
