View Full Version : Nice piece on Cueto

Excellent control, a deceptive delivery, the ability to keep the ball in the ballpark and on the ground, a great work ethic: These are the ingredients of an ace, no? Even better, Cueto is just 26, with room for improvement. Thatís not too bad considering heís already one of the best pitchers in the majors.

The question now is: When will America notice?

Nice to see Cueto get a little attention but I rather enjoy the Reds flying pretty far under the radar this year as far as national news. It keeps the pressure and stress off them as they head into the home stretch of the season and into what could be an awesome post season. :beerme:

I agree with Heather. Let those major market teams monopolize the headlines...we'll quietly work our way to the WS thankyouverymuch. :O)

I think the lack of recognition is keeping Cueto inspired. I know he was unhappy about LaRuse snubbing him for the All-Star game, and I think he uses that to fuel the fire a bit. :thumbup:

Yeah he's a super competitive guy and it's what makes him so good.

His run support has been terrible this year, it's a shame, but I hope that factors into things as well.
