My latest piece for ESPN has been posted. It’s about Johnny Cueto, and why America needs to stand up and take notice of his brilliance.
I was poring over Cueto’s stats last night as I wrote the piece, and I was simply amazed. The last two seasons, Cueto has been even more dominant than I had realized. He’s right up there with the best pitchers in the game, yet he’s never made an All-Star team, and he’s never been named on a single Cy Young ballot.
The kid is just 26 years old, too. What a special pitcher.
