some people on here mentioned the dayton game was on tv tonight, so if you are watching, please give us a report on how wood looks.

Bailey gave up three runs in the first inning. :rolleyes:

Last year he couldn't throw strikes, this year he finally finds some control...and now he's getting rocked. Just once I would love to see a Reds pitching prospect actually step it up and thoroughly dominate competition for a full season.

Cant dominate them all. Its early still in the season, this is what, his 4th start?

I know it's only four starts but I was hoping he come out of the gates dominating this year. He has been pretty good I guess, but I have higher hopes than just pretty good.

4.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R(2 ER), 0 BB, 5 K
5.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 5 K
5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K
5 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 5 K

Doubtfull Homer will dominate at this point, he is still catching up to the level, considering his rawness with those 2nd pitches.

Chick looked good tonight(who would ever believe me saying this, where's M2 lol!!!)

The thing I want to see out of Homer this year is progression with his secondary pitches and fewer walks than last year. Thats all I am really looking for, but I am not disappointed with his start this year at all. His walk totals need to stay down and tonight wasnt the most promising, but its still early.

Great to see Travis Chick put together a great start. Consistency is the key. Chick has the stuff to be a pretty good major league pitcher, maybe in the mold of the 2002-2004 version of Kip Wells. We'll see if he can string together a few starts like this in a row.

This outing brings Chick's '06 numbers to: 19.1 innings, 18 hits, 6 walks, 15 strikeouts, 1.26 WHIP, and a 3.26 ERA.

He was way overrushed last year, so I sorta throw it out. He is sorta Baileyesque that he has the mechanics, but the secondary pitches simply aren't there for him to be successfull in the Majors yet. Considering he orginially came from the Marlins stockpile, I have some hope for him next season barring injury.

Knock on wood (no pun intended), but mainly I want these guys to remain healthy. They have talent and are still extremely young. After the disasters in recent memory (Howington, Gruler, etc) I'd like to see one of these big names actually make it to the point where we can get legitimately excited.

So, did the rest of the team play, or did these guys just pitch? ;)

I think they just coverd all the positions...lots of infield work.

Exactly! I agree 100%. These guys all have major league ability, they just have to make a little progression each year, and STAY HEALTHY! Rome wasn't built in a day, so just give them some time, and let's see what they develop into in a couple of years. I think they are all pitching well against older hitters. AAA- Germano (23) Ramirez (23); AA- Pelland (22) Chick (21); A+- Bailey (almost 20), and some good college draftees last year, along with Vazquez; A- Wood (19), Cueto (20), Valiquette (19), and some more decent college draftees from last year. So I think there is hope, the Reds just have to be patient.

Did I miss a rule or something that they can only go 5 innings? It seems that whenever I see the pitching line on these guys that's all the throw. May be a dumb question but I don't recall ever hearing anything about it.

There is no rule, but they probably have pitch limits being that they are still both 19 (I assume you mean Wood and Bailey)

Travis Chick is through 6, 3 hits, 1 walk, 0 runs, 5 strikeouts.

He hit a double in the game as well to help himself out, along with Votto's 3rd SB of the year.

Yeah, I am trying to figure out why Votto is running so much. He has never had more than 9 stolen bases in a season in the minors, and he has three already and April isnt over.

Yea, I know, I think he was caught stealing once too, so he's ran 4 times so far, go figure. On a side note. I saw Justin Upton last night. Not much to report, I think I'll go again in a couple of weeks to get a better report to post. He had an two run double, with a couple of strikeouts. I think he just has to get his timing. He seemed to reaching for balls on the outside part of the plate.

I gotta call my bookie - throw down some cheese on Bailey getting exactly 5 K's next start.
