Assuming Cueto isn't out too awfully long (fingers crossed) things will probably be okay. They could certainly be better though in the present if Dusty wasn't so stubbornly set in his ways of "this player his this role and ONLY this role". But he's not going anywhere.
The team was 4-8 after 12 games and lost series to STL, Washington and StL. The only thing I worry about is how our pitching staff and hitter have fallen. Time will tell.
