But latos would have been my choice too. I think there's a decent number of people who think Latos will have the better season, myself included. If 2012 is THE season - they better get used to pressure, so I'm not buying the too much pressure argument. Otherwise it's 2010 again come postseason.
The Volquez decision last year blew up despite the comeback win. Go with your best arm. For me, that's Latos, then Cueto, then take your pick.
Well either Cueto deserves it or he doesn't, right? You started by saying Cueto deserves it, and if that is so, then he should get the start. But it seems like you're saying if it was up to you, Latos he would get the start - though he doesn't deserve it? I'll admit, I am confused.
I think Dusty should see how things go in Spring Training, but unless Cueto tanks, he earned the starts for the Reds last year. After all, Latos has won zero games for them so far this year.
