The Reds and their fans around the world breathed a heavy sigh of relief last night
after beating the Phils in a close one 4-3. "The real hero was Janish, saving (the) bullpen last night," Baker said. "He allowed (the bullpen) to be fresh and sharp in a meaningful situation." Brandon Phillips' unique take: "I’m glad we got the butt-whipping the last two games. It kind of woke us up."
RJ Anderson at FanGraphs is worried that Johnny Cueto may be hurt
Through the first two months of the season, Cueto was throwing strikes at a 51% rate. In June, that percentage dipped to 42% and through two July starts he's only hitting the zone 40% of the time. His velocity is fine, but he isnt hitting the zone with any regularity.
At least Dusty Baker seems to be aware of Johnny Cueto's situation
"We were concerned coming in ... he didn’t get the rest (he needed) because of Winter Ball and the WBC," Reds manager Dusty Baker said before Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Phillies. "We’ve really monitored his pitch count."
