    Cueto and Volquez move into the "spring training" starting rotation

    * Change in the upcoming pitching rotation. Aaron Harang will throw in a minor league game on Sunday and Edinson Volquez will start the game against the Phillies. Bronson Arroyo will throw in a minor league game on Monday and Johnny Cueto will start the game against hte Tigers on that day

    I like this move. I will feel a lot better about the Reds' chances this season with these two in the rotation and Affeldt and Fogg in the pen. I also wouldn't mind seeing Bailey pitch in relief
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Bailey's 5th day would be Saturday, so maybe he'll get another look...

    Thank you,

    That will be an interesting period. I hope they all pitch great to make it even more interesting.

    How many on here, due to kids like Cueto and Volquez, think Bailey is going to start the season in AAA?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I do. It could end up being the best things that happened to Homer Bailey are named Cueto and Volquez.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I think that he will or that Baker will try to get him a year in the bullpen working with Pole to prep him for next year. I am not convinced that the minor league experience or coaches down at that level can get him where he needs to get to at this point and that he might get over the hump by pitching out of the bullpen for a large part of the season.

    Good news.

    I think the best Reds rotation possible is with Cueto and Volquez in it. Those two guys have special arms and could put this team in the playoffs IMO. They will have some lumps along the way but I think we'll see a lot more positive than negative from them.

    Looks like the Reds rotation spots(2 up for grabs) is down to the final four(Cueto,Bailey,Volquez and Fogg).

    1) Harang
    2) Arroyo
    3) Belisle
    4) Volquez
    5) Cueto

    ...

    That's how it'll start... wouldn't surprise me in the least to see #4 and #5 become #2 and #3 (not necessarily in that order) by the end of the season.

    I'd like to see Cueto slotted in at 4 and Volquez 5, but I'd take that scenario anyhow.

    Do you see what is going on you guys ? A miraculous event is happening! Yes our beloved Reds fans are talking about Pitching and not about lack off but an actual option dealing in over abundance!

    I have no claim to being Mr. Know it all but i saw, sorry if I am missing other names aka the denizens of the minor league forum this coming as did Dirt and OBM and shout out to Sandy. This was the only realistic way to make the Reds Better longterm. there will be growing pains and it could the way of Generation K. But this is the only possible way for this franchise to contend on a long term basis.

    I am so pumped about our future words escape me. If all goes as expected I will hire Falls as my spokesman to convey my feelings of how special I believe our upper echelon kids are.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.
