    Re: Something wrong with Cueto?

    Glass Half Full: Isn't it entirely possible that they simply want Cueto and Leake to flip flop spots? Cueto is essentially in the 4 spot. Swapping the 2 puts him back at the number one. Maybe the discussion was to see if Leake could go on short rest? Answers the "we'll see tomorrow" part.

    Glass Half Empty: Cueto is still fatigued from his last start and not ready to go. The oblique is still acting up.

    I love Hal, but he has a history of speculation, and a history of being wrong about it.

    Hopefully this is some gamesmanship for the StL series.

    Re: Something wrong with Cueto?

    I could see it being this:

    Cueto felt sore again after his start; just wasn't recovering as they would want. So they're going to have him skip a few starts and spend some time tweaking his windup.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    To be fair, he did state right at the top that it was pure speculation and was just passing along his observations basically.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I doubt it as well, but let's remember that there were supposedly a bunch of names in there using codenames and such.

    Re: Something wrong with Cueto?

    I could see it more as two unrelated things. The medical staff talking about Phillips, and maybe a rotation work-over for the StL series.

    A couple of starts? Then DL him. Good grief.

    700 wlw claims that we would know in a couple hours if he would make his start. They said it was a slight re-aggravation of injury that DL'ed him

    But maybe 700 wlw's report was based off Hal

    Pretty sure reds are moving Cueto to bullpen and 8th inning duty...

    Re: Something wrong with Cueto?

    It'd make sense to flip him and Leake if it's at all possible, so we have Cueto going against Wainwright. The question is whether or not Baker puts enough stock in the upcoming series with St. Louis to do so. Contrary to the manager cliche's, not all games count the same when you can put a dent in your opponents record and give yourself a boost at the same time.

    I really hope it's not a re-aggravation of his oblique.

    This would fit with the report I mentioned of wanting to adjust the rotation and looking for the chance to do that.

    I know we don't know for sure whether Cueto's oblique problems are due to his windup, but I have to say watching him now does make me cringe a bit. It just sort of looks painful the way he twists with that little hitch.

    Re: Something wrong with Cueto?

    This def is not good, hopefully he is fine. We would be in serious trouble without Cueto. I also think it could be about Votto, he should get the day off tonight, same with BP and Choo, it'd be nice to get these 3 rested before the St Louis series. 2 days off would refresh them. My line up tonight:

    Robinson- CF
    Cozart
    Bruce
    Frazier
    X Paul
    Hannahan
    Mesoraco/Hanigan
    Izturis

    With BP likely still out, now aint the time for a day off for Choo or Votto. If you sit both, you outta just forfeit and let everybody rest.
