    He's the starter who'll give the Reds the best shot, no doubt about it. But as someone upthread said, no scoring, no victory. We can hope for some Pirates defensive gaffes I guess.

    Good decision. Now if Choo and Bruce can come within a foot of a Liriano pitch they might win the game.

    Cueto's arm is fresh. That's basically it. Latos even said on the Fox broadcast he hadn't been formally told either way if he were getting the ball on Tuesday.
    I'm not reading anything into it. I'm saying I believe it's as Fay reported. See, you guys want to read negativity into things I say even when it's not there.

    Is it also my fault you guys can't read?

    Love the move. It'll be easy to second guess if it doesn't work out, but in an absolute must win game he's the guy I want taking the ball.

    Not going to sit Latos unless he REALLY does have at least a little something bothering him.

    Him not knowing for sure, was because he could go Tuesday had Cueto been needed Sunday to play for the home WC, but with that gone, they decided to slot Cueto there and hope Latos can go in the division series.

    I agree.

    And that could entail starting the guy that can actually make people nervous.

    Re: Cueto to start Tuesday

    I think this has more to do with Dusty trusting Cueto over Latos for 1 game. Which I'm happy with.

    Latos was good against Mets but have to go with healthiest guy.

    He's an award-winning British television writer.

    Or a biology professor at Duke

    Not sure which. Maybe both?

    The offense has scored 9 runs in the last 46 innings.

    "Cueto or Latos?" isn't really my biggest worry.
