    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.
    So essentially you are saying Cueto is a headcase? He sure didn't build on his Augest success in high A last year to June.

    Cueto allows a double on a grounder through the SS/3B hole. Why is Joey Votto playing LF?
    Gets out of the inning unharmed though.

    I am saying that something happened that all of a sudden he began to absolutely dominate. Maybe Ted Power down in AAA pointed something out to him. Not sure, but something happened and he began to absolutely dominate.

    Yes, I am. But not about 5,555.

    I think Rick Sweet realizes we're probably going to keep Hatte and have Cantu platoon with him and get rid of Dunn so Votto will be playing LF for us.

    Dunn would have been traded by now if that were the case.

    Yet, must we tell again: Votto is not a good LF. He makes Adam Dunn look good.

    Hatt has to be the most overvalued Reds player in quite some time.

    I think this case is glaring in its prematurity, but otherwise I think its really difficult to pin down when the time for the "next move" is for any player. Goes back to that old Potter Stewart standby: "I know it when I see it."

    That being said...It really makes me wonder what the hell the pitching instructors and coaches are being paid to do on these teams, since it seems like players stagnate at levels in terms of development (they may continue to be successful, but not continue developing) and the only recourse seems to be pushing them up another level and hoping the player figures out how to refine their game themselves.

    Maybe one of these days the Minor League Updates thread can be longer than the Reds game thread...

    I meant during the offseason. I really don't see us picking up his option.

    Dunn can't be traded during the offseason.
