Cueto's Debut Bested Only By Marichal's

 

 

Cueto was all over the Dominican press this morning including a color photo on the top left corner of the front page of Hoy.

The headline reads "Johnny Cueto- Un debut como los grandes," which can be understood as, "Johnny Cueto- A debut like the legends."  The gist of the article is that Cueto's start is the best by any Dominican pitcher since hall of famer Juan Marichal:

Ayer, en su debut en las Grandes Ligas, el derecho de apenas 22 años de edad hizo historia para la República Dominicana, con un debut tan auspicioso que solo es superado por el que tuvo el inmortal Juan Marichal al comenzar su carrera el 19 de julio de 1960.

Yesterday, in his major league debut, the 22 year old right hander made history for the Dominican Republic, with a start so auspicious that only the immortal Juan Marichal was better the day he began his career, July 19, 1960. 

It continues on to compare Cueto's seven innings of one hit, one run ball with 10 strike outs to Marichal's incredible debut 48 years ago- nine innings, 12 strike outs, one hit and no runs.

It also gives a chart of other  debuts of "Grandes Lanzadores" Domicanos (Legendary Dominican Pitchers):

F. Carmona 15-4-2006 Tigres 6.0 5 1 4 2
J. Cueto 3-4-2007 Dbacks 7.0 1 1 10 0

 

(Pedro's debut date has to be wrong, but I think the other info is correct)

My favorite part is the last line of the article:

El debut de Cueto es para la historia.

Cueto's debut is one for history.
