Game 122 Open Thread: August 12 2008

Lohse Volstad
13-4, 3.80 3-2, 2.67

here's a short article about the marlins' starter, chris volstad, that i saw at fangraphs this morning. he's a sinkerballer --- only 1 hr allowed this year in 123 combined AA-MLB innings, and a big-league GB ratio of 56 percent. the cards often have trouble with this type of pitcher. he doesn't have great control though, and he's bound sooner or later to leave a couple pitches up and pay the price. maybe tonight.

i'll be out of pocket all evening; i've programmed one overflow thread, which will open at 7:30 CDT.
