It's a little trick I just recently learned about, but it works for all PCL, FSL, and Knights home games.

What's actually ironic is that one guy Cueto has handled well in his career, to the tune of 1/12 - Mike Trout.

Who was it arguing he was going to be up last week or no later than this weekend?

Sox need to show a bit more urgency here. Today / tomorrow needs to be VVs last start. Cueto isn’t some young arm they need to be careful with. Get his ass up here.

We should have seen Keuchel's last start.

VV is absolutely a better option than Keuchel. DFA Keuchel when Cueto is ready

That comment was before VVs last start in which he certainly earned another. Realistically both suck.

He’s going to be released on May 15, they’re trying to middle through without paying him.

I'm kinda leaning this way too. The starting has been fine and Lynn will be back (hopefully) by end of the month.

Probably more like mid June for Lynn.

I don't think it has anything to do with paying him.  He's been terrible at AAA.  There is no indication whatsoever he'd be an improvement over the current 5.  If he was dicing up AAA hitters, he'd be here already.

This is so far from the truth. 

He's on a "pay as you go" deal, for nickels. 

He's just not ready yet, plus I don't think they're ready to dump Keuchel just yet.

He has a may 15 opt out date though.

Why sign him if they aren’t going to bring him up? What a waste of time and a use of resources.

To see if he can help? They didn't spend anything on him if they release him. Was worth the try.

He's been dogshit. No one should care if they release him or he opts out.

Oh for sure.  But the comment from Balta that the reason he's not in the bigs is they're trying to avoid paying him is silly.  He's been awful.  

I think Cueto opts out.  He's got 1 start left until 5/15 unless he's willing to pitch on the opt out date.  

As bas as Keuchel has been, Cueto is a good bet to be worse.
