View Full Version : Favorite Reds Starter

Who is your favorite starter to watch pitch? For me, it's Cueto, I've seen him a couple of times in STL this year and when he is on, he has great stuff and a very live ball. Temperament-wise, he reminds me some of Mario Soto, but of course that can be a negative and can lead to his troubles. But when he is on, he sure is fun to watch pitch.

Volquez is easily the on with the most electric stuff.

I chose Leake, but it was between Arroyo, Cueto, Leake, and Volquez. I love watching all of them pitch. They all bring something else to the table and are very unique and entertaining in their own right.

Where is Wood? He would be my pick.

"Other"....for him, Homer Bailey, and whoever else I couldn't think of.

I understand. But I am in for Wood, as a favorite, and no one else.

Bronson. He typically lets the hitters determine how he pitches, unless he blows up I enjoy it.

I have no shame to admit that I have a massive man-crush on Travis Wood. His composure, his stuff, his pinpoint location, his Arkansas twang. I dig it. It still could prove to be a flash in the pan, but I'm along for the ride right now. His bid for perfection had me on my on the edge of my seat like no other performance I can remember.

tough question. i really cant choose btw cueto/arroyo/volquez/leake/wood. i guess ill take arroyo since hes been here the longest and is pitching great.

I just want to know who picked Harang.

Fan of them all even though Cueto is probably my favorite. Followed him before he even came up and I knew there was something special about him. Dude is very underappreciated and underrated.

I like Leake and next years rotation is going to be sick (in no particular order)


I say if Chapman is Ready next year, you say goodbye to Arroyo and make Bailey a long reliever/spot starter. If Chapman does need the extra year, you pick up Arroyo's extension and make him your number 1.

Bronson is pitching great this year but for pure entertainment value to watch pitch ill take volquez and his mid to upper 90's stuff sitting people down.

I just want to know who picked Harang.

I guess if you like the long ball and dont care which team hits it then harang might be your man:)

Aaron Harang's brother checks out Redszone, I see.

Love Bronson's consistency year in and year out. Great to have him on the team. Would look a lot better if we had an ace to put with him and the rest of the staff.

I pick Arroyo. Just because he is so underated by this board.
