Kevin Corriea doesn't have particularly good numbers against the Reds. 4.69 ERA, blah peripherals. But in 15 games (10 starts) he is 7-1.
Johnny Cueto has a 2.70 ERA, good peripherals. In 15 starts he is 10-3 against the Bucs.

Drew Stubbs 1 for 8 (a single) with 3Ks. Nowhere to go but up for Drew.

Reds goes 1-2-3. Cozart K, Stubbs F9, Votto F7.

Stray
05-04-2012, 08:12 PM
I hate swinging at first pitches. Stubbs is probably the only guy who I don't mind seeing take that approach since he's more likely to strikeout later in the count. But Votto can't be that easy of an out.

Cueto gives up a bloop single to McClouth but no damage done. 0-0 going to the 2nd.

New York Red

I don't think it's possible to look any more comfortable on the mound than Cueto looks this year. He's as relaxed and in control as a pitcher can be. His mechanics are so smooth and effortless, he looks like he could throw 150 pitches every time out and it wouldn't faze him.

Dusty let him bat in the 8th with runners on first and third and one out, so I'm assuming Cueto is going to finish this one out, unless the Pirates get a rally going.

I agree with that, but I think Cueto is a different kind of pitcher. Some guys wear down around the 90-pitch mark, but Cueto is just getting warm when he gets in that range. He doesn't expend a lot of energy with his mechanics, and he's thick. He's a horse. I would have pinch hit for him in the 8th, for the same reason you stated, but I definitely don't have a problem with letting him go for the CG.

Great AB by Rolen to draw a walk. 2-out bases loaded for Heisey.

As a viewer, I'd like to see him pitch the 9th, but I would be prone to coddle such a valuable guy if I were Dusty.
As you can see, I'm on the fence. Like I said, I would have PH for him in the 8th. On the other hand this is the first time he's gone past 7 this year, and we're going to need him at times to go more than that, so might as well get ready for it. But after a long top of the 9th, I'd rather see someone else close it out. I definitely agree with coddling our ace early, but I also want to rest our great bullpen whenever we can.

New York Red
