    Cueto extension discussions per Fay

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/1...ith-cueto.html

    Apparently talks have begun with Cueto

    The Reds have locked up two players and discussed a potential extension with a third, but GM Walt Jocketty isn't stopping there. He has had preliminary discussions with Johnny Cueto's representatives about a long-term deal, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    The Reds also had preliminary discussions with Johnny Cueto on a longterm deal. Cueto, like Votto and Bruce, is eligible for arbitration.

    It's doesn't cost more to extend longer contracts, it should save money, though can be risky.

    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    I like it. This is similar to what those mid-90's Indians did with their parts. Except they didn't have nearly this much pitching. Times are good right now, Reds fans.

    Bruce and Cueto are the best two people to be extending at this point IMO, given their cost, potential, risk, and replacability.

    I have to say it. How in the world will Chris Carpenter explain this to his son?

    Cueto and Bruce are both arb-eligible -- I'm guessing the team included this into their thinking when forming the 2011 payroll and left significant "wiggle" space for all arb-eligible players. These long-term deals are really nothing more than cementing a number that's already been budgeted for in 2011 and writing the numbers into stone for 2012 and beyond.

    And, for the record, I'm 100% against going long-term with Cueto. As happy and thrilled as I am with the Bruce deal, I'd be that disappointed with doing the same thing for Cueto. He's my #1 target to move this off-season to clear out the logjam in the rotation.

    In most cases it's saving money in the short term. The amount of money to be paid to those players isn't increasing via these deals. All that's changing is that the Reds are committing to a specific value now rather than waiting until the offseason before hand.

    Cost certainty has a good deal of value to a team on a tight budget and barring significant under-performance, increases the plaeyrs' trade value.
    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.

    IMO there is not such thing as a MLB having a logjam in the rotation. The Reds success last season can be in great part to having a 6th, 7th, and 8th guy to pull up into the rotation for 6-10 starts and not be putting up a 6.50 ERA. Keep 'em all IMO. If you don't make the cut then you can work a bit in AAA or be a long guy in the bullpen. When the inevitable injuries hit, you have guys to plug in.

    You can never have too much pitching, but it strikes me as foolhardy to keep 6 legitimate starters (plus two extremely good "replacement-level" options in AAA: LeCure and Maloney) when your starting LF is Jonny Gomes and starting SS is Paul Janish.

    Cueto has produced more than any other of the young arms and it's not even close. Think long and hard before showing him the door.

    I'm definitely in favor of extending Cueto. And I may be the only one who feels this way, but I'm in favor of extending Volquez too.
