Hopefully in a couple years we'll be talking about the Reds doing the same with Cueto, Volquez and Bailey!

he got like a 7 year deal according to espn news. thats a bit risky since he was 1-10 the year before last, but he appears to be a stud.

It has 3 team options which are his last arb year and 2 years of FA. In fact, the guaranteed portion is only 15M for the next 4 years. I don't see any risk there considering this year alone Fousto is worth 15M+ in the FA market.

Cueto needs to be locked up like this next offseason before he becomes better and wants more. The sooner the Reds sign Cueto, the lower it'll cost.
