All isn’t well, but outrage is misplaced

Thoughts about a few current events: The Votto-Cueto Moment Last year it was Todd Frazier’s heart-pounding win in the Home Run Derby – the highlight of an otherwise dreary season for Reds fans. Joey Votto’s second at bat against Johnny Cueto last night wasn’t on that grand of a stage. But at least to this …

Giants down Reds, 9-6, after furious comeback

Johnny Cueto had a 46-pitch nightmare inning, but the Giants' bats bailed him out. The abridged version of the Giants' 9-6 win against the Reds on Monday night: While looking up happy stats about pitchers hitting, I had to stop to look up sad stats about pitch counts in a single inning. That's when the Reds bullpen ate tainted clams and fell up a flight of stairs. Brandon Crawford hit a well-timed three-run home run shortly after. The end. If you're looking for nuance, this wasn't your game. The Giants are the kind of team that can score more runs than the other team. Johnny Cueto is the...

Cueto allows 6-run inning in homecoming, but Giants still win

Cueto allows 6-run inning in homecoming, but Giants still win CINCINNATI — The sparse crowd gave Johnny Cueto a standing ovation when he took the mound. The Giants overcame a six-run third inning against Cueto with a five-run seventh against Cincinnati’s inexperienced bullpen and won 9-6, with Brandon Crawford’s three-run homer provided the lead and he padded it with an RBI single in the ninth. Coming off a shutout against the Padres, Cueto extended his scoreless streak to 14 innings before a third inning that required 46 pitches to complete, the most by a Giant since Wayne Franklin...

Reds 6, Giants 9 - Nice game goes south for Cincinnati thanks to another bullpen disaster

You know the story. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto came into Monday's outing with an OPS over .900 in his previous 9 games, in the process trying to eschew the ugly stat-line he'd carried before that mini-breakout.  The Cincinnati Reds 1B came barreling into a matchup with his former All Star teammate, Johnny Cueto, and the stage was set for a public tete-a-tete that Reds fans had quietly pondered for years. Votto struck out in his first appearance against Cueto, but proceeded to launch a healthy 3-run dinger against the former Cincinnati ace in his second...
