With all the hype surrounding Johnny Cueto and Edinson Volquez going into the 2008 season, I was just curious what kind of numbers Redszoners think they will put up this season? I personally think both are going to have huge seasons for us. We Reds fans are due for some luck.
2008 Johnny Cueto prediction
Wins the 2008 NL Rookie of the Year award.
2008 Edinson Volquez prediction
Volquez is considered one of the better starting pitchers in the league by the end of the season. Volquez takes a similar path to that of Jose Rijo - a young pitcher with brillant stuff who struggled with command early in his career until he was traded to the Reds and really took off in 1988. Only this time it will be 2008.
By the end of the season the Reds rotation is viewed as one of the top rotations in the game with Harang/Volquez/Cueto/Arroyo and ar widely considered as the favorites to win the NL Central in 2009.
