mth123, do you happen to know his pitch count? i thought you were posting it earlier.

Seems he's being pretty efficient. I like it.

There are times you have to trust your D behind you and let them carry some of the load - keep your pitch count down. It seems like Bailey is making a concerted effort to do so lately, as well as get his command together.

When you get all those ingredients, and combine it with his penchant for missing bats - when he gets all those things workin, when it clicks, I think we'll start seeing Bailey make those steps towards realizing his full potential.

Bailey's inability to strikeout batters in AAA has gotten disturbing. Obviously it is quite evident with the groin injury/mechanical breakdown last year caused most of his command problems. You would think throwing more strikes would open up the door to more k's, but for Bailey, that doesn't seem to be the case.

You would think throwing more strikes would open up the door to more k's, but for Bailey, that doesn't seem to be the case.

I agree to some extent, but when a guy is getting guys out, not allowing runs, it is hard to argue...It doesn't sound like guys are making good contact off of him...

Bailey is looking like a AAAA player right now.

Aronchis,

Bailey is working on several things right now, per the Reds brass request. Shorten his stride, improved his mechanics. Command his pitches and the zone, and throw strikes.

Given these directives, and that he's basically implemented them for what.. 5 starts now maybe? I dont think its a huge deal.. yet.

You know about the weather too. Let him get loose.

Getting in a groove without his best stuff this early can only be a good thing. You know that. I know you do. Let him get his legs fully under him, his new mechanics down, and give it a while. If you don't see improvement by mid summer, then you might have something to worry about. As of now, progress is progress.

No doubt, especially on cool, rainy nights, Bailey will like the mid-80's dry periods later this season. But the lack of k's is a worry. Cueto had the same problem last year in high A as well when OBM was freaking out to boot and I thought he was a head case. Then something happened in late June and he went crazy striking out batters. If the same thing happens for Homer, good for the Reds, but if it doesn't, the horror the horror.

Scott tossed after call costs Dragons

By Brian Gillespie

Contributing Writer

Sunday, April 20, 2008

DAYTON — Dayton Dragons manager Donnie Scott must have thought he was suffering from a case of déjà vu Saturday, April 19, at Fifth Third Field.

For the second straight night, Scott was forced to watch umpire Jason Alper make a critical call that cost his team a game.

And this time, before a

4-3, 11-inning loss to the Clinton LumberKings became official, Scott went bananas.

In the 11th, with a runner at third and one out, Clinton's Tim Smith lifted a foul fly to left. Dragons outfielder Keltavious Jones caught it, but the ball appeared to squirt around in his glove before he gained control.

Clinton's Engel Beltre tagged up and dashed home with the eventual game-winning run.

Initially, the umpires seemed unsure whether the hit was fair or foul and allowed Smith to keep running. Also, there was some question whether or not a runner could tag up before the ball was secure in a defender's glove.

After the official ruling of sacrifice fly, Scott blew a gasket, screaming in Alper's face. When ejected, Scott proceeded to kick dirt on the umpire's shoes and toss third base almost all the way to the Dragons' dugout.

Alper also struck Friday night when he ruled two-run homer rather than a double on a ball that actually hit the wall and bounced back into play.

Ironically, Jones was involved in that contentious play, too, while playing right field.

Scott gave the crowd its money's worth on a night when the Dragons' defense and baserunning let them down with two errors and three runners caught stealing. Second baseman Kevyn Feiner did his team no favors in the 11th as he bare-handed a Beltre grounder and tossed it past first baseman Michael McKennon for a two-base miscue.

The Dragons' nightmare ended in the home 11th when Denis Phipps was caught stealing to finish the game.

Jones provided nearly all of Dayton's offensive fireworks, going 3-for-4 with a pair of triples and two runs scored. Meanwhile, Dayton got solid efforts from starting pitcher Matt Klinker and reliever Enerio Del Rosario. Klinker went 5 2/3 innings, allowing six hits and three runs. Del Rosario surrendered two hits in four innings of shutout relief.

LeCure, Chattanooga Lookouts blank BayBears

By: David Paschall
(Contact)

Though the 2008 Southern League season is still in the toddler stage, the Chattanooga Lookouts began a 10-game homestand Saturday night that manager Mike Goff deemed very important.

“These are 10 big games,” Goff said. “Mobile is leading the league in hitting right now, and we have Carolina coming in behind them, and they’re leading our division, so these are going to be big games for us.”

So far, so good.

The Lookouts started their stand with a 5-0 win over Mobile’s BayBears before a crowd of 4,816 at AT&T Field. Chattanooga starting pitcher Sam LeCure entered with an 8.68 earned run average but threw six scoreless innings in notching his first win.

LeCure allowed three consecutive hits during the third inning but avoided damage when Chris Rahl, on the first of the three hits, tried to stretch a double into a triple and was out easily.

Chattanooga took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Sean Henry drew a leadoff walk, stole second and scored on Shaun Cumberland’s single to center. It stayed that way until the sixth, when Jose Castro was hit by an A.J. Shappi pitch with the bases loaded and Drew Anderson followed with a pinch-hit single to right that scored Henry and Cumberland to make it 4-0.

The Lookouts are 8-8 through 16 games and have yet to veer more than a game in either direction from the .500 level.

“The thing is, we’ve got a good team,” infielder Luis Bolivar said. “We don’t have a power team and we’ve started kind of slow, but when we get the tools that we’ve got together, I think we’re going to be all right. We’ve been close in every game.”

Said Goff: “We’re due for some things to go our way. We’ve had a lot of balls fall in by other clubs. The other night we gave up nine hits, and six were ground-ball hits. That’s not supposed to happen, so we’re due for some of those balls to fall in for us. Once that happens, I think this club will get on a little bit of a roll here.”

Chattanooga is four games back of North Division-leading Carolina, which improved to 12-4 Saturday with a win over the visiting Tennessee Smokies.

Pitching, especially from the bullpen, was the expected strength of the Lookouts entering the season. As of Saturday, however, they were fifth in the league in team hitting and seventh in team pitching.

“I think our hitting, so far, has been good enough for us to win,” Goff said. “We’ve had some leadoff walks that have hurt us out of the bullpen, but at the same time, they’ve given us a lot of ground balls that we haven’t fielded behind them, and that’s hurt. When your bullpen has to throw a significant number of extra pitches that they normally wouldn’t have to throw that first week of the season, it’s going to take a toll, and that’s what we did that first week of the season.”

The Lookouts will have a strong shot at a second straight win this afternoon at 2:15, with Daryl Thompson (2-0, 0.51 EAR) as the scheduled starter. Tony Barnette (1-2, 6.92) is scheduled for the BayBears.

:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Generally, a player gets the AAAA label when, after a lengthy stay in the minors and many,unsuccessful stints in the majors, it's obvious that while he can succeed in the high minors his game is unsuitable for the majors.

Nothing in this statement is true about Bailey.

Absolutely nothing.

Otther than your dislike for any prospect wearing Red.

Sardinha Pops out on Bailey's 101st pitch.

Sounds like they're stretching him out to get him ready for the big show.
