I take it back, we need to throw at Ruiz the rest of the series. Get up in his kitchen.

Volstad's stuck in his head. That poor guy looks flustered.

A lot of good outings start with a bad inning. If he's willing to call that the "bad one" I am, too. Let's go, Chris.

I know. On the one hand, I feel bad for him. On the other hand, I wouldn't ask him to take the ball in the playoffs if that's the kind of response we see here. So maybe, if it doesn't work out, he can be effective in relief.

I do think starters are more likely to become effective relievers because they have more time/ABs/innings to develop pitches against ML hitters, and often have a third or fourth pitch to employ. I could see Volstad being a good reliever: 4 good innings, one bad one, 4 good ones, one bad one...in baseball that's par for the course.

I know, right? He can make the catch but he might as well roll it back to the infield.
