Cueto needs 78 more strikeouts to break the Reds rookie record set by Gary Nolan in 1967.  Since he likely only has 8 or 9 starts left, it's doubtful that he can do that, but he only needs 45 strikeouts to pass Orval Overall (1905) for the 2nd most by a Reds rookie.  That is definitely within reach.  It would also be great to see him get his ERA to down around 4.5.  That would mean he'd pretty much have to average a quality start every time out for the rest of the season.  It won't be easy, but if he can do it he'd likely become the third Reds pitcher to win 10 games this season - the first time that has happened since 2000.  (Hey, I know I'm stretching for reasons to watch right now)

Snell has really kind of sucked this year.  And the Reds have hit him well in the past led by Alex Gonzalez, Javier Valentin, Ken Griffey Jr., and Ryan Freel.  I think that means they have a pretty good shot tonight.

Today is the first day of the rest of the days after today.  Make the most of it!
