Dusty should have learned something about his pitchers and their makeup tonight.
    I got blasted for saying this earlier in the season, but the maturity level of Edinson and even Cueto is just not there. For either one of them. Watching Wood and Leake earlier showed me something. They are as cool as they can be even when things aren't going good. Volquez and Cueto aren't. Not playoff material yet. Sadly.

    I think Cueto, Volquez, and Bailey could all be put into that category.

    Wood, Leake, and Arroyo definitely seem like they aren't fazed by pressure. Chapman also seems "cool as ice" on the mound.

    A bit premature, but anyone think that one of Volquez/Cueto will be traded for another "piece" this winter.

    Trading Cueto would beyond stupid.

    Cueto, he's farther along on the salary scale, scouting shows his body type will decline with age and yet currently he's a nice asset.

    I'm not sure, but with Volquez, Cueto, Arroyo, Bailey, Chapman, Leake, and Wood all viable starting pitchers, I think at least one of these guys needs to be traded for a LF or a SS.

    Agreed that one of them could be moved. I just don't know who I want to be moved, either Volquez, Cueto, or Bailey. I hate to get rid of any pitcher with the type of stuff that they each can bring. I probably lean towards moving bailey for a shortstop. I think their is plenty of future outfielders in the system.

    Halliday pitched great...I've gone from celebrating last week to trying to drink away any knowledge of the game I just watched. :all_cohol

    I really don't like thinking it, but I fear Cueto will have a start similar to Volquez.

    And if he does it would still be beyond stupid.

    I know Dusty gave more legitimate reasons for his decision to start him in this big game than you just gave for your opinion. Of course, Dusty's first reason, legitimate or not, was more than you just gave.

    Re: Halladay throws 2nd postseason no-hitter in history to beat Reds in Game 1

    Thoughts.

    I'd rather lose a game 1 no-no to the runaway Cy Young winner than give up 3 in the 9th to lose.

    Yes, trade Cueto, Alonso, Francisco.....find a horse or an all-star left fielder (brilliant points on Cueto woy)

    Put the best team on the field for the rest of the series, please.

    Even if they lose Friday....this team can come back to win it. I've made the mistake of counting the 2010 Reds out a few to many times.

    Admittedly, I spent most of the last 2 innings just laughing at the futility of it all.

    Only positive to come out of it: this Reds team responds to crap situations better than any team I've followed. Blow big leads? No worries. Get swept by the Cardinals after running your mouths? Not a problem.

    They'll lose this series, but it won't be because they go into some tailspin after being no-hit.

    In a strange sort of way, I almost am looking forward to seeing Oswalt and Hamels after tonight.

    I mean honestly, it can't get any worse than how things went this evening.

    If I remember correctly, that's how Hal McCoy called the series. He said the Reds would lose 2, then win 3 in a row. Daunting, but that's how they've rolled all year.
