This game is going to be spooky. Someone should really call up the Ghost Hunters. Why, you ask? Because walks will haunt, and this game looks to be full of them. Jonathan Sanchez comes into this game with a BB/9 of 5.45, while our own Edinson Volquez sports a whopping 6.21 BB/9, so big that I'm pretty sure it got stuck in a bathtub during its presidency (William Howard Taft reference WHAT WHAT). Sanchez and Volquez have both been effectively wild for much of their careers, but neither have really been able to translate their above-average stuff into acedom due to below average control. It bodes well that the Reds have an elite offense and the Giants decidedly do not, so ideally while the Wagon is striking out the side after walking the bases loaded, Jonathan Sanchez is giving up RBI doubles after doing the same.
