Royals Take Series Behind Dominant Volquez

With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why? They were applauding Edinson Volquez and his nearly eight strong innings. The offense, featuring not one, but two, home runs, was able to provide enough run support.   It seems like there have been plenty of nights here lately where the Royals needed their...

Baseball Karma Is An Unpleasant Female Canine

The Kansas City Royals pitched my Stros inside all night. They were finishing out their last series at the Juice Box (and got their proverbial butts handed to them by my mighty mighty Stros—boo yeah!). Apparently, the process didn’t sit well with Royals starter Edinson Volquez.  He hit three of my Astros.  I thought that the ride in/up pitch on George Springer may–may have...

Volquez, Royals look to avoid sweep at hands of AL West-leading Astros

A home series sweep of the AL leading Kansas City Royals might provide another reason to believe the Houston Astros can remain a serious playoff contender as they approach the halfway point of the season. They can do so by preventing Edinson Volquez from winning a fifth consecutive start Wednesday night. Having witnessed Kansas City's surprise run to the World Series last season...

Where would the Kansas City Royals be without Edinson Volquez?

Lost in all the madness of the Kansas City Royals‘ All-Star bonanza has been the much-less-hyped but just-as-important stellar season that starting pitcher Edinson Volquez is having. The Royals are considered the American League favorite by many Vegas oddsmakers, but it’s hard to ignore their spotty starting pitching. Entering Saturday, the Royals’ rotation is ranked 22nd in...

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. If they can continue to get starts like the ones Edinson Volquez has provided more often than not, they're going to be just fine. Volquez dominated the Yankees, the bullpen did their thing, and the offense plated more than enough runs to give Kansas City a...

Edinson Volquez signs with the Royals

Ray Searage helped make Edinson Volquez a rich man: Jon Heyman reported this afternoon that the Royals have signed Volquez to a two-year/$20 million deal. I am of two minds about this deal. My first thought is that I’m happy that the Pirates didn’t give this sort of deal to Volquez. I’m relatively certain that his 2014 was a mirage and while I have a lot of confidence in the...

What did Edinson Volquez do differently in 2014, and what hasn’t changed?

Edinson Volquez had a better year in 2014 than he did in 2013. This seems like an obvious statement to make — Volquez had the worst ERA among qualified pitchers in baseball last year, putting up a 5.71 ERA with the Padres and Dodgers. Given that the Padres and Dodgers both pitch in pitcher’s parks, that number is even more impressive. In 2014, Volquez has been the mainstay...

Video: Pittsburgh Pirates turn quick triple play

The Pittsburgh Pirates had never turned a triple play at PNC Park heading into Sunday’s game against Chicago. But that all changed in the fourth inning of the National League matchup. With runners on first and second, P Edinson Volquez was in a jam and desperately needed an out or two to prevent what could’ve been a big inning. Thanks to a quick turn by Josh Harrison, Neil Walker...
