John Cueto Injures His Arm (His Pitching Arm)

Shut Johnny Cueto down! No matter what! Even if his exit from Sunday's game redefined precaution! Even if he's ready to pitch tomorrow morning! Exclamation point! How loud do I need to scream? If the Reds are to play meaningful baseball contests in October in the immediate future, two things must happen: (1.) Johnny Cueto must be healthy, and (2.) Johnny Cueto must be healthy.

Cueto + Volquez = meal ticket - and I'm pretty sure Castellini/Jocketty/Baker get this. But you never know. This season is over and Cueto has been extremely impressive for a 22-year-old; he has nothing left to prove. Sure, he could probably sharpen his command or breaking ball, but you get my point: Cueto has proven that he has the ability to be a dominant starting pitcher...and thems are rare.

Especially in this town, where we long for the days of Pete Harnisch and Steve Parris.

This video has nothing to do with your post, but it's funny. And i agree, shut cueto down. Shut all the promising players down

Cursing on live television will always make me laugh.

And I disagree that the promising players should be shut down. But Cueto and Daryl Thompson shouldn't throw another pitch.
