I'm so glad Walt signed him in the offseason. :confused:

You guys do understand that he is down there working on things and trying to build up his arm and not really caring about the results. It's kinda like spring training.

Are you questioning the Cueto extension?

I dont know what the big deal is? It looks like Cueto would fit right in with the rest of our guys

Without knowing what "objective" Cueto was working on last night it is unfair to bash the outing. If he was instructed to throw nothing but X types of pitches to test out the arm then that is what he did. What is important was where were those pitches and even more important is how did his arm feel after the game and then today and tomorrow.

How is 68 pitches in less than 2 innings a good thing for a guy coming off an injury? What pitch could he work on that giving up 9 hits and 2 walks, while only getting 5 outs would be a good thing? Throw in the fact that Cueto looks about 30 pounds heavier than last year, and is having to learn how to pitch with added weight. I'm pretty worried about the guy.

I'm not ready to jump to an conclusions on Cueto from one bad start in a rehab assignment. From what I remember, his last outing in AAA was pretty good, albeit only 3 IP or so.

Homer or Dontrelle can fill in for Volquez if the struggles continue, and I don't want to see LeCure sent down yet anyway when he has 17/4 SO/BB, and a WHIP under 1.000.

Again we don't know what the objective was in the game. Maybe he was instructed certain pitches and he struggled with those. I really doubt he is heavier then last season..

Yeah, hardly a concern to me. I don't care what the results were, as long as he was healthy and able to make X amount of pitches to fulfill his rehab assignment.

I was at the game and he wasnt the only one that got shelled. Danny Herrera was the only one to not allow a run.
