    I'm with Kelch though, in wondering why Cueto is gassing it up there in the first few innings. Something is playing on his mind.
    If it were just this start, you'd be right. But he looked as bad as he's ever been in his last start against Houston and fell apart suddenly in the start before that against Philadelphia. I don't know what's wrong, if anything, but I don't think commenting on it is an overreaction.

That's an amazing statement."

    To get out of that funk, I'd take it.

    Rolen with an infield RBI single. Another oddity

    Although it is the game thread, so knee jerk reactions are pretty common.
    The division is locked up and he's never thrown this many innings, why not pump the brakes a little where you can? I don't think having that POV is some freak out.

    Man, when Drew's BABIP normalizes he is just going to be unstoppable the three times a week he makes contact.

    I'm starting to feel like Dusty and Drew are doing the limbo... how low can you go?

    .214 average, .281 OBP and .627 OPS.

    Seriously now, what is it going to take for the Reds to admit it's time to move on from Drew? Especially when they have an in-house option with an OPS nearly 140 points higher.
