"Not a bad box score for a pitcher fresh from the college ranks. His work performance showed people plenty, particularly Dunn"


Looks like Mr Hill might want to do a little more research....

He probably asked Hal McCoy to factcheck it.

Why? It seems the statement was correct. Bailey showed Dunn a lot, and seemed to make an impression with him.


"He looked good," Dunn said of Bailey. "I'm on the bandwagon."



"He threw me a good changeup," he said of Bailey. "I know that's not his pitch; he's working on it."


"He's so smooth it just seems like half of the pitch gets on you a lot quicker than it looks," said Adam Dunn, one of four hitters Bailey faced in his one-inning outing.


OH, I see now, what you were referring to. The college pitcher part, yea that's just sad.

Bailey never went to college. He was drafted straight from High school.

Thats the wrong statement, unless Im wrong...then I'm just nuts..but we knew that anyway right?

:laugh: :laugh:

Eh....the writer would probably chalk it up to baseball season just starting, but regardless, he should check his source(s), especially on that one!

Anyways, back to subject at hand....good job from Homer!!!!

Something I am also wondering, when Homer gets here and when he actually hits his first major league home run, how many different jokes and such do you think we will hear on the tv and radio??? And does anybody know how well Homer does actually hit? Will it take him awhile to hit that first homer or is he fairly decent with the stick?

Hopefully he will hit the batting cages with Arroyo to learn the tricks of the trade for a tall, lanky, power-hitting pitcher. That or he just needs to face Glendon Roush a few times.

Anyone who has to "check his facts on whether or not Homer Bailey went to college" should turn in his pen and paper and get a job as a car salesman, because he shouldn't be writing about Sports, let alone anything else.
