    Re: travis wood slinging bagels

    I just watched him pitch on TWTV on demand today. I think if you called him up today as a 19 year old, his changeup would have to rank among the best in the game. He may need to work on consistency a little bit, but that pitch just floats over the plate a second longer than you think physics would allow. Add a nasty drop at the end and you end up with a whole bunch of pathetically horrible swings.

    If you watch the 8/12 game, he throws 1 curveball that has a very sharp 1-7 break. That shows you how raw it is when I only saw one the entire game that I would consider a good curveball, but I still believe that's going to be an above average pitch on day.

    Better prospect. Wood or Cueto?

    It is a tossup between the too. Wood a little younger, cueto a little further a long. They both could be great.

    Wood. Better pitch and athlete. From a mechanical standpoint, Cueto is ahead of Wood. Wood's ability to repeat his delivery isn't there yet, though it is a rather simple one so the Reds gave him a 133I ride, which worries me a little. Hopefully he isn't feeling it.

    I haven't read much about Cueto, other than his low to mid 90's heater. What other pitches does he throw. I know Travis has a change that is already a 70 (on the 20-80).

    I've heard numerous announcers say that Cueto has three very good pitches - fastball, change, and either a slider or curve.

    I like Wood over Cueto at the moment. Something tells me Johnny will wind up in the pen. No that there's anything wrong with that.

    Was Calvin Medlock telling you that?

    Superdude, you can't quit smoking the J long enough to realize that it's all about how tall you are, can you?
