    Trade Cueto

    Guys I think we need to unload this kid while his value is high and before GM's realize that all he does is throw strikes. The Reds don't need a one trick pony that has so many K's. Yeah, his run production is good, but how many ground balls did he induce? How many pop outs? How many foul territory pop outs?

    It is clear to anyone with any basic knowledge of baseball that this kid is not going to get better. He has reached his peak. Once other teams realize this his trade value will drop and we will be left on the hook for a guy that could set a record for K's in a season.

    I thought we should have went with Stanton as the #3 guy and bought out Cueto's contract.

    All those people who wanted to trade Cueto for Blanton look pretty stupid right now.

    Yes I do. It's a marathon and not a sprint though. I hope I continue to look like an idiot lol.

    Re: Trade Cueto

    I didnt want Cueto or Votto involved in a trade for Blanton.
    Bailey would have been a thinker abouter for me ( with others of course).
    I really hope Bailey pans out to be at least half the pitcher Dougdirt thinks he will but I really have my doubts about him.
    Anyway great job yesterday by Cueto !!

    Please tell me this thread is a joke. I could not imagine someone wanting to trade Cueto.

    It would be nice to see a mid season call up of Bailey to replace FOGG in the lineup. Hopefully Bailey could push us to contention if the other young guys pitch like they are capable.
