    Cueto would seem to have grabbed the lead for the last slot yesterday, but it's still early and I expect Mr. Volquez will be making his case soon enough. Mr. Bailey can get in there as well, but my theory is he needs to do so on Monday (and, yes, I think that's totally unfair).

    I mentioned this in the game thread, but I expect K/BB is the stat that Baker and Pole are paying strict attention to with these kids. Right now here's where they stand:

    Bailey - 1.00
    Volquez - 2.50
    Cueto - infinity (btw, what keys do you need to hit to type an infinity symbol?)

    Cueto was always going to win that battle, but if one of the other two does exceedingly well too, then it could be considered a wash.

    Burton
    Thompson
    Volquez
    Bray
    McBeth

    Ok, so I'm crazy. But you asked who I got!
    So the Reds gave Belisle a million bucks to disappear?

    For me its:
    Harang
    Arroyo
    Belisle
    Cueto
    Volquez...

    right now. All Cueto needs to do is keep doing what he's doing, and he'll get a spot. Volquez has his because of how he was acquired.

    If I had to guess, I'd say:

    Harang
    Arroyo
    Belisle
    Fogg
    Cueto

    Affeldt goes to the pen because he can't get stretched out enough for Dusty's liking. Volquez and Bailey start the year in AAA. I'm not crazy enough to guess the bullpen, I just hope that Stanton and Majewski aren't in it. I want to see McBeth and Salmon -- but I doubt we will.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I've never ever run into a touchier bunch than those who are convinced Homer is ready for the big leagues right now.

    Homer's got a lot of talent and he's young. Just because someone feels he's not ready yet doesn't mean they think he's never going to make it.

    Calm down and stop acting like someone called your girlfriend ugly.
    I've probably said in some fashion (either directly, or indirectly) that Homer is a waste of time.

    I don't think he's washed up as a 21 year old, but at the same time I'm not convinced he's as good as advertised.

    I think worrying about Homer is a waste of time. The Reds' FO has to be seriously kidding themselves if they think he's ready for 2008, but I'm not going to lose sleep if the Reds' FO continues to mismanage his development. That being said, I don't think their mismanagement of him changes his potential. Like I said, I just don't think he's as good as advertised. I think if they treated him in that light, as opposed to overhyping him, we might see more positive results on a quicker timetable.

    Regardless, Homer's roster spot is completely out of our hands, so there's little use in worrying about that spot, or Homer Bailey in general.

    learning is fun. now somebody teach me about magnets.

    seriously, While I prefer Volquez and Cueto, one of Fogg/Affeldt is likely in the rotation at least to start the year. Cueto has been dominant thus far, easily the Reds best SP this ST. (yes, I know... its early.)

    I'm thinking of picking up the full FSN package just to watch the Bats. That has the makings of a very fun rotation.
