“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
You do know that as a minor league pitcher, Cueto is going to have his bad starts and that he's not going to consistently mow down hitters every time out. And considering that his K's and control were actually pretty good, his start seemed to be more of the bad luck variety than anything.
Suggesting Cueto is pissed every time he has a poor game has been a tiresome read, as you really don't have the inside information to pass this information as fact.
Not to be snippy Aronchis, but you act like you have insider information when you at no point have really suggested you actually do.
These types of actions can't be found in the numbers. So how do you figure that Cueto (amongst others) are constantly whining like little children? Or how do you know Votto's pouting caused him to struggled for a couple of games and then proceed to smoke the ball?
No "absolute" proof. But some evidence is there that Cueto needs to mentally toughen up.

Considering Cueto maintained good peripheral stats in his start, it could have been nothing more than hits finding the right holes, and a poor defensive effort.
Maybe there's the odd game where they lose their focus for whatever reason. Perhaps last time around was indeed the case for Cueto. But neither of us is really in line to say these types of things so matter of factly. Perhaps I'm jut being a stickler and I'm the only one who sees it that way, but I really doubt that every decent Reds prospect is pissing and moaning every time they don't get their way.
I think hes a mean spirited kid but I only suspect that.
It is good to see Cueto seems to have gotten back on track tonight. I believe he will help the Reds in several years.
Why was Cueto sent down again? Good job Wayne.
He was sent down to help Chattanooga in their playoff run. I would expect him to start next year at Louisville.
