    David DeJesus. Seth Smith. Two choices for top of the order.

    I just hope the bullpen doesn't ruin this great start for Cueto. Great job!

    I like the Bob Gibson impersonation. Hit the first batter.....strike out the next 3.

    Amazing outing by the ace to put a stop to a losing streak.

    Cueto Ks the side after the HBP. 118 pitches, probably done for the day. Nine Ks, his season's high.

    Brilliant pitching by a true ace and a should-be NL All Star, Johnny Cueto.

    Hey, Arroyo, Bailey, Latos, Leake. Why can't you guys pitch like Johnny C?

    I was talking about in-house options. And I'll be honest, I bet we don't do ANYTHING at the trade deadline.

    The tv announcers were talking about it earlier. The extra wildcard will make even fewer teams looking to sell at the deadline. And the few teams that will be dealing, will be commanding bigger returns due to it being a sellers market.

    Simply put, I think we have the answers in-house already. Normally, shuffling deck chairs gets you nowhere...I don't think that's the case here. Our batting orders are so far away from optimal, re-arranging that could make a huge difference.

    This was as good a starting pitching performance as the Reds have received all season. Cueto is at the top of his game. It's great to see a home grown pitcher become so good.

    Reds coming up now with Heisey, Votto, and Phillips.

    Heisey shows that the 2 hole isn't a black hole. Lead off single.

    You and I have a fundamental disagreement about this ballclub.

    Single for Heisey, Votto with a double play, Phillips flies out despite tough sun field for Willingham the LFer.

    True. I'll admit that the handedness is an issue, but not as big a one as some make it out to be. The guys who were struggling have begun to turn it around.

    The only way Phillips will go back into the leadoff spot is if Rolen hits like its 2010 (first half) and he can hit clean up.

    And that is very unlikely.

    Again...I agree. He "should"...but I doubt that he will. ("he" meaning Phillips)
