Well just got through the autograph line at the caravan. During the Q & A session i asked dusty who baring injury will be the opening day starter. His answer, if the season started tomorrow, it would be johnny cueto

Barring injury it will be Johnny Cueto vs Mark Buehrle on Thursday, April 5. Hopefully Cueto continues his ascent as a top of the rotation starter.

I think Josh Johnson will get the start over Buherle. Johnson vs. Cueto, and Cueto should get the start. Latos hasn't done anything for the Reds and Cueto should be rewarded for last year as long as he makes it through spring training healthy. it doesnt matter anyways. Opening Day is the only game where we need a #1 starter until we get to the playoffs.

Nah, it should be Cueto. I think Latos is the better pitcher but Cueto earned it for his performance last season. Latos will probably be the OD starter in '13.

It should be Cueto. And it shouldn't even be a question. In Cincinnati you have to earn the start.

The people who are predicting Marlin pitchers, you guys do realize that we will be facing their number 2 guy on Opening Day, don't you? The Marlins and Cardinals play in Miami on the 4th.

The Marlins are opening a new ballpark this season so I'm certain that the Cardinals game on the 4th has everything to do with showcasing the new palace to the entire world.

You mean the 67 fans that actually show up for Marlins games? I agree thats why it is being done, but does anyone really care?

I was thinking the exact same thing. You can't spell Miami without MIA. And by the second week of the season that's what Miami fans will be. They don't even care about that team. Why would the rest of the country?

Also feel Cueto has earned opening day start.

Cueto without a doubt. Let Latos get a game under his belt to experience cinci and the fans. Especially on opening day. Plus I always go to opening night and I wouldn't mind seeing latos pitch in person.;)

I hope for the sake of baseball that MIA turns into a thing of the past.

You wouldn't think so, but the stadiums for both the Florida teams are/were in terrible locations. My brother in law lives in Tampa, and he said the it takes him about three hours to get home from the field because of traffic and the location of the stadium. I suspect the same is true in Miami. I say the Rays should cut a deal with Disney, and move the team to Disney World.

There actually is a field in the disney complex already that is used by one of the minor league teams and as a spring training complex, i've got the feeling though if they did that it would really help the rays and it would if possible draw even more jobs into one of the biggest public companies in the US

Could you imagine the advertising power of Disney behind a contending MLB team?

I think Latos may have a slightly better year, but Cueto's no slouch and he deserves it after last year. I don't know how well it would sit in the clubhouse if a new guy made the start. Baseball players seem to have a strong sense of what a player has earned and about hierarchies that exist amongst veterans, rookies, and new acquisitions. Latos needs to earn his stripes as a Red. If they had traded for someone like Lincecum, it would be a different story. However, there isn't much seperation between Cueto and Latos.
