Cueto got jobbed

UPDATE at 7:40 p.m.: Nevermind.

C’mon, 8-4 with a 2.69 ERA and the guy can’t get on the All-Star team?? How dumb is the rule that every team must be represented … Cueto is clearly more deserving than Ted Lilly (8-6, 3.32) … better record and ERA obviously and also a better WHIP than Lilly, five fewer HRs surrendered, etc. Hopefully one of the starters chosen can’t go for some reason, in which case our man Cueto had better be first in line to replace that guy.

The only thing that made the announcement of the All-Star squad easier to swallow in a completely schadenfruedic (is that a word?) way is that Dunn got jobbed too :D

Congrats to Coco.

    cueto just gave up 9 earned runs in the first inning against philadelphia, he was replaced after getting only 2 outs

    the manager was right in not getting him for the All Star game

    btw, your reds just lost said game 22-1

    @earl – LOL – Pretty convenient of you to point that out now.

    The fact still remains… up until tonight he had an all-star first half of the season.
