Top 10 starting pitchers in baseball heading into spring training

Without a doubt, pulling apart the ten best arms in the game at any point is a tough-to-nearly-impossible task. However, in today’s game, with a firmly established group of top arms between the ages of 27-33, it is a specifically tough group to crack. It could be argued that even cracking the top 20 is a feat, as even last year’s American League Cy Young winner is the third best...

Johnny Cueto Is Also a Giants Ace

The appeal of lists and rankings, whatever its cause, is very real. That thing you like? Sure, it’s good, but is it better than this other thing?! We’ve seen this carry over into baseball presumably since the sport began. Williams or DiMaggio? Aaron or Mays? Garciaparra or Jeter or Rodriguez? We’ve even clung to “Trout or Harper?” for as long as we possibly can. Whether...

Johnny Cueto suffers groin injury, says it felt like he was bitten by a crab

The San Francisco Giants got a much-needed 2-0 victory on Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Dodgers to move into a three-way tie (!) with the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals for the two NL Wild Card spots.

Johnny Cueto blew an awesome gigantic bubble

The Major League Baseball season is long. You travel to a bunch of different cities, and you spend a lot more time with your teammates than your actual family. Baseball games are pretty long too, and the action isn’t as constant as it is in other sports. This allows for plenty of down time, especially if you’re a pitcher. Well, San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto gave...

Report: Royals didn't invite Johnny Cueto to White House visit

Johnny Cueto was only a Royal for a few months. But that doesn’t mean he deserves this kind of shade.

The All-Star right-hander was acquired by the Royals...

But even relative to other pitchers, Cueto was regarded this offseason as a rather large uncertainty. Between his underwhelming second half and ugly postseason with Kansas City, a right elbow that barked multiple times throughout the year, and his heavy workload...
