    Disagree. Somebody has to look at the bigger picture at all times. It may not be the driving thought behind the decision, but it should be a factor in the decisions.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    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.
    I'm not as worried, but I do think the Reds have lost important parts.

    IMO the number one starting pitcher is the most important player on any MLB team. Cueto's absence is a big loss. Hopefully it is short.

    Ludwick and Marshall are missed too, as we all know.

    So to be clear, Sir Charles, do you want Pedro to replace Johnny if it is for a couple more starts?

    This is a good day. I didn't have to cook, and I've insulted a Cardinals fan. Life is good. :P

    There is no bigger picture for this team. There is one picture. Going as far this year as possible.

    Would I allow a guy to seriously injure himself to win? Of course not.

    Would I allow a guy to postpone work on his secondary pitches? Surely.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Shocking that a guy with a 5+ ERA at Triple-A is getting rocked around.

    Pedro Villanotreal gives up the bomb!

    Hanigan might have told Pedro that Tulo is very powerful and he might just pitch around him.
