    Who will be Opening Day starter?

    My guess is Latos since Cueto missed so much of 2013 AND the fact that Duhsty is gone (As I'm SURE he would stick with Cueto as that's his M.O.). Could make an arguement for Cueto or Bailey easily. Just my guess.

    Not to sound full of myself, but I think it will be me. During this off-season I've really been working on my gyroball. Plus, I've been throwing my fastball consistently at 45 mph.

    Or it will be Latos.

    Plus, you've been running a lot, right? Best shape of your life?

    I agree. It should be Latos.

    Too many uncertainties at this point.
    Issues: will Latos's arm be healthy and fully ready to go to start the season?
    will Cueto's side be healthy and fully ready to go to start the season?
    will Bailey's hernia be healthy and fully ready to go to start the season?
    will Cingrani's back be healthy and fully ready to go to start the season?
    will Leake have long or short hair to start the season?
    will Raisor allow the Reds to use his services on the field this season?
    will Jim Coombs come out of retirement to throw a perfect game to start the season?

    No doubt, it will be Latos.

    Cingrani as the dark horse.
    Is it "next season" yet?

    I would go with Latos but could see the argument if Cueto has a solid healthy spring.

    Johnny Cueto.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    If you refer to Dusty Baker as "Duhsty", that's a pretty good sign nothing you have to say is worth hearing.

    Yeah, I forgot how much he was universally loved here on Redszone, never a bad comment. You're exactly right.

    Criticism is fine, puerile stupidity is not.

    I'm hoping Leake, just to see TRF have a meltdown.
