    Cueto's start?

    I didn't get to see him pitch today and I was wondering how he looked. I know he had a perfect game through 5 and a ton of strikeouts. I was just curious about his velocity and mechanics.

    He looked really good. Those Pedro comparisons look just about right. He really does know how to pitch and has the stuff to back it up.

    Constantly hitting 94-96 with all of his fastballs. Challenged every hitter with fastballs. Unbelievable how well he looked today.

    He was nasty. Mark Grace and Sutton had nothing but raves for him. Exciting day to be a Reds' fan.

    Go look at the YouTube entries on the ORG thread. They've got the 2nd inning posted, and the D-back announcers were just gushing.

    It was special to watch. He was around the plate all day with late movement on everything. After the 5th there was a sense something special was going to happen. Maybe the HR he gave up was a blessing though as it made it easier on Dusty to take him out after 7. I've always been a pitching guy and it's been a while since I've really been this excited about the Reds. I wish the Cueto jersey would've been here in time for the game but hopefully it'll show up before his next start.

    Am I dreaming? Wow!

    PS: I have no idea why Dusty brought In Mike Lincoln when he did instead of Burton but it worked so kudos to him.

    I cannot wait to watch the You Tube link when I get home from work! It sounds like Cueto was just awesome today.

    Yeah, the fact that his stuff was near the plate almost every pitch was the best part. He was putting that ball wherever he wanted it.

    Eric Byrnes looked terrible a few times against Cueto. It was awesome.

    Chris Young K'd 4 times, and he's not exactly a hitting slouch.

    Cueto looks like Jose Rijo to me. This start gets me excited for Volquez. I really hope both these young guys have great years with the Reds.

    I expect some hiccups this year, but he defenitly has the talent to take the #2 spot from Arroyo by year's end.

    AWESOME game today! I was one of the 120 people (hahaha) in attendance and Johnny was mowin' 'em down. I was hanging out with some business guys and they all called into work after about the 3rd. Johnny was the talk of the crowd and even AD was playing a little D.
