Edinson Volquez, Meet Kerry Wood and Mark Prior.
Dusty Baker has done it again. He's blown out the arm of another promising young pitcher by pushing him far beyond the natural progression of innings.
When people start asking why Joba's missing a few starts here and there to keep down his innings for the year, point them in the direction of Mr. Baker's history of destroying careers.
Volquez is out for at least 12 months, probably most if not all of next season. Prior has never recovered. Wood can no longer start games.
It's just further evidence of why Dusty Baker is the worst manager is baseball.
Yes, he is worse than Ozzie Guillen.
I have no idea why the Reds brought him out of retirement.
