    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.
    Thank You. Great post.

    But that would mean that pitchers can control their BABIP?

    What type of stuff does Cueto have? Speed, and pitch wise.

    Mid 90s fastball. I have seen him clocked from 89-99 this year, although the fastest reading outside of that 99 was a 97, so I have a feeling that gun was just a little juiced. He has an above average change up and a slider that is very good.

    Sounds kinda like Jake Peavy to me. Lets just hope he is 2/3 the pitcher Peavy is
