Yes, I think Cingrani is better than Pedro...but is coming up right now better for Cingrani or is it better for him to stay put for now? I'm not sure everybody is asking the right question. Our focus is on the Reds and right here and now...a wider lens is sometimes helpful.
My wide lens says letting Tony start a couple more games for the Reds and then returning to Louisville won't stunt his growth.
