Surprised Gomes isn't a little higher after the walkoff yesterday. Silva is very hittable.

Still blowing in his hand a bunch. I really think it's that he can't get a feel for the ball.

Missing spots is one thing, but bouncing them up there and missing by 1-2 feet is another.

Missing spots is one thing, but bouncing them up there and missing by 1-2 feet is another.

I really think it was just a matter of him trying to aim it, since midway thru the Ramirez AB he has consistently been in the zone, found his release point and is just letting it rip. Although 2 hits given up in that time.

This club is so frustrating to watch. We seem always to be undoing ourselves. No reason to give up a run that inning and if Homer had just kept throwing the fastball to Nady they wouldn't have scored the second one either. Meanwhile we hit the ball hard all over the place and it's caught.

Yeah, he has. But it's not Hernandez. He simply doesn't know where it's going to go. Homer is all over the place. He's not missing in any one place. Up, down, in & out. Actually, Raisor's comparison to Nuke wasn't far off tonight.

I'm looking forward to the postgame interview with Homer to see what was bothering him. Something wasn't right.

I agree with the guys in the booth. The old Homer would have given up about seven runs in this game but he battled tonight and only gave up three keeping the Reds in the game (if they could actually find some offense but that's a whole other issue). Learning experience for Homer and I'm sure he'll take this and use the lessons for his next start.

Glad to see Micah pitching well so far. :)

I know everybody's frustrated by the low pitch count, but to Silva's credit...he's been in the strikeszone an AWFUL lot. Him pitching quickly also helps him (and his defense) out. What the reds need to do is whatever they can to get Silva out of this rhythm.
