    Cueto needs to stay in the windup. He loses control in the stretch. Just let them have 2B...
    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.

    Terrible strike 3 call on EdE. Ump must be a Cubs fan because Cueto's zone is smaller. That 1-0 pitch on Edmonds just now was a strike.

    Cueto hits Ramirez then walks Edmonds to start the 2nd inning.

    Hitting Ramirez on 1-2 was killer. Looks like the second inning will be the bad inning for Cueto tonight.

    Cueto did a nice job of getting out of that inning...

    I really like seeing Votto giving out the infield encouragement after a nice DP.

    Not sure if he was pepping up EE or Cueto, but either way I like seeing him take charge like that.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    No score after 2.

    Harden 24 pitches, 17 strikes.
    Cueto 30 pitches, 16 strikes.

    Harden has struck out 5 batters and still has a pretty low pitch count after 3 innings.

    Wow. Where was that 2-2 pitch to DeRosa? That was way better than that strike three call on EdE.

    Unreal. Bruce misplays a flyball into a double. Why do the Reds always play their worst defense behind Cueto? I can remember Dunn misplaying a flyball into three runs the last time Cueto pitched in Chicago. That should be an error.

    DeRosa is given a double to start the Cubs half of the inning.

    No way that should be a hit.
