And the day before that, Yordano Ventura gave up 5 runs in less than 4 innings. To say the Royals’ starters have had some problems would be a bit of an understatement. There […]

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...

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...
