ZiPS projections don't bode well for Johnny Cueto, Alfredo Simon in second half

By any account, Johnny Cueto and Alfredo Simon have had excellent seasons so far, which recently culminated into trips to the All-Star Game.But at least one national baseball guy doesn't believe either pitcher can sustain their success for the remainder of the year. And that guy is ESPN Insider Dan Szymborski after tabbing both Cueto and Simon among players fantasy baseball owners should cut their losses while they're ahead.Here is what Szymborski had to say about Cueto:Cueto is a very good pitcher, but his early dominance this year was helped by a sub-.200 BABIP through the end of May,...

Negron's big fly came with two Reds aboard and effectively put the good guys on top 3-0.As fate would have it, three runs was just about all that Johnny Cueto needed to pick up his 10th win of the season, and more...

While You Were Day Drinking 2014 Game 85 (CIN vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s an abbreviated reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. Your San Diego Padres (38-47) defeated the Cincinnati Reds (43-41) by a score of 3-0, completing a series sweep. Tyson Ross was your winner, pitching the first complete game shutout of his career (3 hits, 9 strikeouts, 0 walks).

Giants lose to Reds again, get out-aced by Johnny Cueto

The Dodgers lost. Hear that, everyone? Good times. Johnny Cueto came into Friday night's game with a 1.86 ERA. He left with a 1.88 ERA. Gentlemen, this is a victory. Do not minimize what you have accomplished. This is a moral victory. Park adjusted, he should probably have something like a 1.89 ERA. ★★★ If you remember those "Love Is" comics from the '70s, this next bit is for you. If you don't remember it, don't Google it, because you'll end up on an FBI watch list. A comic with two baseball players, preferably fully clothed, titled "Slump Is." Slump is ... when you say things...

A pitching duel you want to see

Madison Bumgarner vs. Johnny Cueto. Doesn’t get much better than that. “Two really, really good pitchers going tonight,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Their guy has been on such a roll all year. Has good deception – you see him spinning on the mound, like (Luis) Tiant’s action – and has great command. He has the ability to throw 95 or 96 when he wants to, and throws to both sides of the plate.” It’s Cueto’s first appearance here since Game 1 of the 2012 Division Series, and that didn’t last long, thanks to an injury that severely hurt the Reds’ chances.

Johnny Cueto earns spot on glorious 'MLB All-Great-Hair Team'

Any baseball fan who has watched Johnny Cueto pitch over the last few seasons has come to make at least two observations: 1) Cueto is a fantastic major league pitcher and 2) Cueto possesses an impressive mane of hair.While we won't know whether Cueto earns the right to start the All-Star Game until a couple more weeks, the wait is over to see whether the Dominican native landed a spot on the glorious MLB All-Great-Hair Team, compiled by Ted Berg of USA TODAY's For the Win.As fate would have it, the Cincinnati right-hander not only made the roster, but he also staked claim to the ace role...
