Four questions at Philly Sports post

I was asked to contribute answers to four questions about the Reds by the Philly Sports Post. Here's an excerpt.
Breakout Potential: I like Bruce to break out, but I also like Johnny Cueto. Cueto just turned 23 in February, essentially skipped AAA last year, and yet still posted 8+ k/9 totals along with respectable walk totals. If he can improve his walk rates--and at times last season he seemed to have pinpoint control--and if he can get his homer rates a bit more under control, the could emerge as a really nice #2ish starter. Add him to Volquez, Harang, and Arroyo and you have the makings of a pretty darn good rotation.
Chad of Reds uberblog Redleg Nation also contributed responses to these same questions. Interestingly enough, we pretty much gave the same answers! :)
