    Do we have the current 'A team' playing tonight because Cueto is pitching, and the organization wants to see him get 20 wins?

    I don't see how that can actually be the A team though it does seem to be what the Reds consider it to be. Really need Mesoraco in there and it isn't as if he and Cueto didn't combine for 8 scoreless last time out.

    I would go:
    Hamilton CF
    Pena 1B
    Mesoraco C
    Frazier 3B
    Ludwick LF
    Phillips 2B
    Bruce RF
    Cozart SS
    Cueto P

    There is plenty of debate on a few of the spots- LF, RF, 2B, 1B but I think this would make sense. if the goal is giving Cueto the best shot of winning they need to figure out how to have Mesoraco in there and to not play half the team of of position.

    Not that it really matters much at this point.

    Is there really a difference between the current A team and the current B team?

    Cueto has had 2 wins of his last 3 that would not have been if not for Heisey's hitting.

    Pena whining about the strike 3 but even though the catcher was positioned outside and the ball went to the inside.... It completely caught the plate and then some to spare.

    Strong breeze blowing out at Wrigley tonight, the cause of which is Reds' batsmen.

    No Rizzo tonight. How is either team going to score now? Ex-Reds' farmhand, Chris Valaika, playing first. Advantage Cueto.

    Cueto has missed the plate completely and it called a strike and then just threw one dead center of plate but lower 1/3 of zone...ball
