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...

Is Edinson Volquez Better Than His Advanced Metrics Show?

When the Pittsburgh Pirates signed Edinson Volquez for $5 M last year, there were no predictions that he would be pitching in the NL Wild Card Game this October. Instead, the predictions were more along the lines of “When will the Pirates replace Volquez in the rotation?” and “There is no way they return to the playoffs.” And yet, here we are on October 1st, and Edinson Volquez...

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...

Edinson Volquez is not the next Liriano

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been a bit like the Statue of Liberty when it comes to broken pitchers: "Give me your tired, your poor..." They took a seemingly broken A.J. 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 that their...
