    That's what I don't get. Guzman will chase just about anything out of the strikezone as evidenced by his first atbat, yet the Reds stuck to strictly fastball in that atbat. A nice slider gets him.

    Balk on Cueto moves the runner to 3rd. Damn. That should be an easy run with only one out.

    I get the feeling Cueto would be better off staying in the windup. Let Dimitri have 2nd base.
    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.

    Kearns RBI single.

    Cueto lost it quickly. He retired the first 10 batters on 30 pitches now four straight batters have reach base.

    FWIW, only the double by Dukes was hit hard. The Guzman single was an infield hit and the Kearns RBI single was a groundball that took a favorable hop just out of reach of EdE.

    Cueto threw 26 pitches through three innings. He threw 30 in the fourth inning.

    Re: Reds vs Nats 7/3/08

    How'd they do that? A five pitch inning, with a base hit included. Wow. Hacktastic.

    No rest for a tired Cueto there. Very poor.

    Cueto allows a single on a 1-2 fastball to Willie Harris. Another guy who will chase anything. The only thing keeping Cueto from being a dominant pitcher right now is better pitch selection. Don't throw fastballs to guys who can only hit fastballs.

    I've only seen a few changeups tonight and all have been great pitches. He needs to use that pitch more.

    I'm not sure what's more frustrating. The lack of hits/runs or the manner in which they're doing it.
