I still disagree with the decision to bring Cueto back this season. I don't see where there's anything to gain by bringing him back and risking injury. Between winter ball, spring training, and the regular season he's already thrown plenty of innings.

Agree absolutely, OBM, no way Cueto should be out there.

Tony Cloninger

Cueto developing a slider ...reminds me of Soto doing the same during late 1984 so he could have it for 1985. He began hanging the sliders and went through a long stretch without winning a game that year. Then he started to develop his arm problems. Minimize the slider......throw fastballs an changeups and get him out at 80-90 pitches.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:12 PM
Cueto has had his slider for years now. I have no idea why Chris keeps saying he just learned that pitch this season.

Tony Cloninger
09-06-2008, 08:17 PM
If that's the case.....is it his 3rd pitch and has he only recently started to use it more beacuse he thought the hitters had figured out his other stuff?

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:17 PM
Cueto allows a two out double to Lee but K's Ramirez to end the top of the first.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:18 PM
If that's the case.....is it his 3rd pitch and has he only recently started to use it more beacuse he thought the hitters had figured out his other stuff?

No. His slider has always been his best pitch. I believe Soto taught him a better changeup a couple years ago and then started working with him on a cutter a while back.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:21 PM
Cueto threw 16 pitches in the first inning - 14 were fastballs. I just don't see the reasoning in bringing him back so he can pump fastball after fastball and get hit. He's got a plus fastball but any major leaguer can hit a fastball, especially when they know it's coming.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:22 PM
A one out single by Kepp but he's erased on a Phillips double play.

HokieRed
09-06-2008, 08:27 PM
GIDP by our 3 hitter who's got a less than .700 OPS against righties. That's lineup construction in the best tradition of Dusty Baker.

Top 2

-Soto grounds out
-Hoffpauir K's
-DeRosa pops out

13 pitches that inning, 8 fastballs. Mixed it up more that inning.

Votto grounds out...EdE singles.

Tony Cloninger
09-06-2008, 08:34 PM
I like Chris but he should not give out bad info like that.....hope he uses his changeup more and minimizes his sliders. I cannot believe they would let him go out and pitch if he was not completely healthy and able to handle this.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:35 PM
Bruce walks on four pitches. I believe that's seven walks in his last six+ games.

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 08:36 PM
Bruce walks on four pitches and Patterson follows by swinging at the first pitch and grounding out to DeRosa.

09-06-2008, 08:37 PM
I'm concerened about his arm as much as anyone, but if he's healthy, a couple starts should help ease his mind and the team's offseason planning. Maybe when Louisville's playoff run ends and some kids get up to take his place, Cueto will be shut down then.

OnBaseMachine

Twice this year Cueto has fired a gem against the Cubs and had no run support in both of those games. Tonight's game is looking similar to those two.

Bako lines a single to LF to load the bases for Cueto with one out.

_Sir_Charles_

Okay, seriously...what's going on? Is this the twilight zone or something? Patterson showed enough patience to draw a walk and then Bako actually gets a hit. Bases loaded again for Cueto.

Marquis shows up the ump so he decides to squeeze him on the next pitch. Nice.

Keppinger swings at a 2-1 pinch on the hands and flies out. Way to help him. I hate that stupid little hop Soriano does when he catches a flyball. I'd love to see him do that in a playoff game and drop a flyball.

Damn. Kepp pops out to LF. A base hit there would've been SWEET. :(

OnBaseMachine
09-06-2008, 10:01 PM
I'm still ticked the Reds brought Cueto back. He had a very strong August and had very respectable numbers for a 22-year old starter and had already thrown plenty of innings. A smart organization shuts him down after his injury and lets him end the season full of confidence. Instead the Reds decide to bring him back against arguably the best team in baseball and get roughed up without his best stuff. I don't care if he threw seven shutout innings tonight, he should have been shutdown IMO.

WVRedsFan
09-06-2008, 10:06 PM
If he's that fragile, then trade him now. All pitchers have arm woes from time to time and this 5+ innings won't kill him as well as keeping the rotation full instead of throwing another kid out there to ruin his confidence.

It would make sense to shut him down if there was an alternative, but there isn't--especially if he's healthy.

He's not fragile. He's a huge part of the future and bringing him back with 20 games left and the team 25 games out of first place just doesn't make sense. If the Reds were actually good then bringing him back would be fine.

Look on the bright side: we're learning some important stuff for next year.

I don't look for a good bullpen next year but by 2010 I think we'll be better. I do think we know pretty clearly who won't be back next year: Majewski, Weathers, Affeldt, Lincoln, Coffey, Belisle. And I don't think it's a lock that Bray will be back with his 1.61 WHIP. I look for Cordero, Burton, Masset to be joined, possibly, by Roenicke, Fisher, and Ramirez, with the last spot going either to Bray or to a significant upgrade. I suspect those earlier rumors regarding Sherrill and Street had something behind them. Finding one more really solid reliever like those guys would be a way to improve this team a lot with one move.

Okay, here's the scary part. The Reds have scored 11, 7, 9, 2, 5, 8, 10 and 9 runs on this homestand so far. For a team that "won't score any runs the rest of the season" since Dunn left, that's looking pretty damned good. I know the first 2 series' were against the Giants & Pirates...but this club ain't a pushover and we've chalked up 19 on them in 2 games.

What inning did you leave after? Because win or lose, 13 runs scored in the final 2 innings should've been entertaining whoever you're rooting for.

But yes, a road curtain call is pretty pitiful.

What inning did you leave after? Because win or lose, 13 runs scored in the final 2 innings should've been entertaining whoever you're rooting for.

But yes, a road curtain call is pretty pitiful.

We bolted in the 7th I think. Majewski was just coming to the mound and gave up the homer to Marquis while we were walking to the car.

On the drive home we joked about a "historic comeback" and how it would be the final kick in the nards if we missed it.

Dad dropped me off at the house and the Cubs had 11 runs. In the time it took to walk up the drive way, walk in the house and flip on the TV...it was 14!. Then the phone rang and Dad said turn on the tv after the grand salami. Got to watch Javy flail at three horrable pitches.

Tonight was one swift kick to the pouch after another.

I hate the Cubs and their dipwad fans.

I didn't get to watch the game, but I watched some of the highlights on gameday.

All 3 balls hit out by Soriano looked to be thrown in about the same place each time... low and inside.

I hate the Cubs and their dipwad fans.You're a better fan than me... I wouldn't sit in either seat that I had last night. Just walked around. [which is probably what I will do today since I only have a bleacher seat. Might bolt early, rest and get ready to go up to Dayton for the playoffs there.]
