    That young lady seemed to be really admiring her Latos bobblehead.

    Nah, I'm expecting it. But I like seeing him get opportunities while he's up here. He'll be back. Kid's got talent.

    We have three good AAA pitchers (Cingrani, Galarraga and Reynolds) so of course it's Villareal's turn to pitch when we need a last-minute replacement.

    Oh well, hopefully he can hold on to the lead. I'm bummed about this Cueto news. It's been one thing after another with him since that first playoff game last year. We can't lose our cleanup hitter and our ace pitcher the same season and seriously expect to contend for a WS title. I know the Cardinals won it all recently despite a rash of injuries, but they were the exception to the rule. The idea that a small-market team is going to be able to withstand all these injuries to key players is foolish. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm worried. This team has the roster to win it all. One of the few things that can derail us is injuries to key players.

    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.

    The Reds should use the pitcher who gives the MLB club the best chance to win. Period. Everything else is secondary.

    Cingrani can work on his secondary stuff after Cueto's injury, or in winter ball, or next spring, or whenever.

    Only Cingrani of those 3 are on the 40 man roster.
