4/3/08: JOHNNY CUETO – WOW!!!

johnny-cueto.jpg

Through five innings of his major league debut Johnny Cueto is making it look much too easy. Cueto has a perfect game with eight K’s and the Reds lead the Diamondbacks 3-0. Johnny is only 5’10” tall, but has the heart of a lion and is shaking off his veteran catcher in his first big league start. He is pitching with a purpose.

I saw this kid in the grapefruit league when I saw the Reds in Dunedin. As I was leaving the ballpark I had to ask a scout with a gun what he had “that Cueto guy” clocked at, between 92-94 was his reply.

Johnny Cueto (win) 7 IP, 1 HR (Upton HR), 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 10 K
