    Re: 8/1/2007 Minor League Updates (Cueto pitching in AAA)

    Gameday is up for me Doug. Weird, they just said DeWayne Wise was the first base coach. Is that something that happens a lot in the minors, an injured player being a base coach?

    And a weird thing, the usually slow Gameday is actually faster than the radio for me.

    Looks like the Triple A game is going to be head and shoulders above the Reds game

    Players are base coaches every now and again. Its not very rare.

    Whenever I have listened to the radio and the gameday, the gameday has always been faster than the radio.

    Definitely glad I'm listening to this, considering how the Reds game is going.

    I am getting really mad at the gameday. It just sits there and loads, or pretends to load forever. I have tried it 20 times now.....

    Hey Doug, trying Gamedaying another game, then clicking on the Bats/Tide game at the top. Its worked for me before.

    Apparently 28th time is a charm.

    Cueto didn't dominate in low A. Did he get better in AA? Of course he didn't. He got hot in AA and now he's in AAA before anyone could find out what happens when he cools down and/or the league catches up to him a bit.

    Hopefully it's a spot start and he gets sent back to AA, but right now it looks like a repeat of the hyper promotional plan the Reds have forever applied to their better pitching prospects, the one that keeps failing in spectacular fashion.

    The Bats aren't making Johnson work too hard.

    Bruce got ahead 3-0 before going 3-2 and striking out a bad pitch down.

    I have a different idea with what happened with Cueto from Sarasota to Chattanooga. He was disappointed and uninterested that he was back in Sarasota again to start the year. When he got the call to AAA at the end of May, take a note at what happened once he returned to Sarasota.



    That does not include his last 3 starts. But really, something either really clicked or he got the urge back to be the best he can.
