Ugh, more Roy Oswalt? Can't the Reds miss him just once?

Tonight's the night that Cueto wins #10. I've been pining for it for weeks, but it will be one last milestone for this team - 3 pitchers with 10 or more wins for the first time since 2000. Also, if Cueto can pitch at least 5 innings tonight without giving up an earned run, his ERA will drop below 4.50 and his ERA+ will finish over 100. I'll take that from a rookie.

Plus, they need to win out to get to 78 wins to match my prediction at the beginning of the season. I don't like being wrong. Don't make be wrong.
