Has the Louisville game started yet? McCoy says that they pulled Homer out after 2 innings to be the Reds 5th starter. MiLB.com has the game listed as starting at 6:15 tonite.

That's odd, today's his day and the game doesn't start til 6:15pm.

I'll be attending tonight, hoping to see Roenicke and Bailey. :)

Not a problem. Hal just changed his blog article to read "Manager Dusty Baker was coy about it, but it is finally Homer Bailey time. Bailey was scheduled to pitch for the Class AAA Louisville Bats tonight and will, but is expected to pitch only two innings and take the rest of the night off." He originally stated that Homer DID pitch and was pulled after 2 innings. I guess he finally saw my comment on his blog and fixed it. Anyway, heres to hoping Homer throws well tonight.

Sarasota won 6-4. Todd Frazier had 3 hits in 4 trips to the dish today to raise his average to .269. Ramon Geronimo earned his fourth save going 1.2 innings with a K. I agree with the others who have wondered aloud what Geronimo has to do to get promoted to AA. His ERA is 0.73 after today's game! :eek:

It doesn't sound so bad when its put like this:

Brandon Watson singles on a ground ball to center fielder Corey Patterson.
Oscar Robles singles on a ground ball to left fielder Jerry Gil. Brandon Watson to 2nd.
Rich Thompson walks. Brandon Watson to 3rd. Oscar Robles to 2nd.
Andy Tracy out on a sacrifice fly to left fielder Jerry Gil. Brandon Watson scores.
Jon Knott flies out to center fielder Corey Patterson.
Jason Jaramillo singles on a ground ball to right fielder Chris Dickerson. Oscar Robles scores. Jason Jaramillo to 2nd. Rich Thompson advances to 3rd, on fielding error by right fielder Chris Dickerson.
Brennan King called out on strikes.

He wasn't exactly giving up line drives.

Whole thing doesn't make any sense to me.

Guy suddenly can't pitch that well.
Now he's getting a call up when Maloney appears ready.

Could Homer be throwing lefty in these AAA games? Is he just working on stuff and not really trying? Do the Reds think he'll suddenly turn it around against the Phils? Is it because he's on the forty man roster while Maloney isn't? Maybe Walt doesn't read minor league stats (doubtful)? Is the whole thing a misprint?

Something doesn't add up.

Maloney isn't on the 40 man roster...I'm guessing that has something to do with it.

Let's be fair....Bailey's been rough lately after a nice April. Maloney's been good lately after a rough April - there's probably more to the numbers, but I don't have them in front of me

Sure it adds up: velocity. Throw between 94-98mph consistantly and he misses bats and dominates.

Josh Roenicke just made his AAA debut and got a strikeout, flyout, and another strikeout. What a heck of a debut for Roenicke. Hopefully he's in Cincinnati before long.

Then the only thing I can think is that they have a deal in the works and Homer was the easiest option to go too and he'll only be up for one start.

This move puzzles me.

I just love the optimism here. How about a career night for Homer is possible. Again...no kidding.

When Homer was healthy last year, he threw VERY well. When he started the year in Louisville this year he threw VERY well. When he got repeatedly snubbed in favor of Belisle, Fogg and with Arroyo struggling mightily...he started struggling. I think the motivation dropped off. I'm not trying to make excuses, but it does happen. DougDirt has mentioned it several times...maybe he's just bored down there. I think everyone knows his stuff is good enough for the bigs and he's proven everything he needs to prove in the minors. It's PAST time for Homer in the bigs...for good or ill. It had to be pissing him off to see the Reds consistantly give Cueto start after start when he was struggling (these past 2 have been much better though). It's time.

In response to the "lost velocity" comments I see everywhere...remember that he added a cut fastball to his arsenal this year. He's been throwing that quite a lot. It's THAT fastball that is at the lower speed. Not his normal fastball. He's still 93-97 iirc.

Best of luck Homer!

It was great in-person.

Quick inning for Roenicke tonight. I was watching the radar after each pitch. He dialed it up to 98mph on one, while hitting 94-96mph consistently. He threw only a few off-speed which was at 84mph. I had to laugh at the first pitch he threw because he blew it by the hitter so badly. The guy was coming out of his shoes.

I missed the first inning of Bailey's outing, but as I was driving I listened, and he gave up two weaker singles, another hit, and an error on Dickerson which the fans near me were riding him about. Bailey had a quick 1-2-3 in the 2nd with groundballs. When he left in the 3rd, I stood up clapping as loud as I could, while no one else joined in....guess they all didn't get the news. ;)

Herrera did better than what his fate was. Only one pitch was over 80mph and that was 84mph....but his other 'fastballs' were 78mph and had the hitters quite fooled. I think one of his off-speed pitches registered in the low 60s (61 IIRC). It was great to see him pitch.

Patterson did his famous pop up in his first AB. lol Then he had to get hits in the rest. Dickerson hit a HR to tie it in the 9th off Steve Kline I believe.

Great game after the sun went down, but the Bats lost.

Oh, and regarding Bailey's velocity at tonight's game....I saw the radar hit 95mph once or twice, with most of his other fastballs at 93 and 94 range.

Which is exactly what it was last year in Cincy. But did they have any movement because that is my concern? And what of his secondary pitches, did he throw any and what info do you have on those?

Thanks for any info.
