Cueto Who?

Johnny Cueto, the 22 year old rookie who was ranked 48 best prospect has lit up Dusty Baker's Reds. On his MLB debut Cueto pitched againest a difficult Arizona Diamondbacks who reached the NLCS last season. Cueto struck out 10 D'Backs in 7 innings and allowed only 1 hit and 1 run.

Cincinatti has decent talented as much as I love Dusty Baker I don't think this is the year for him to make the playoffs but if Cueto keeps it up and becomes the ace in a couple of seasons we have 5 contending teams in the NL Central. The Reds have a good lineup and pitching staff and the other prospects Homer Bailey and Joey Votto who I have a good feeling about. The Reds have Griffey, Dunn, and Phillips in the lineup and also Aaron Harang, Fransico Cordero, and Bronson Arroyo.

Will Dusty and Cueto go to the postseason?

You never know!
