Bailey's confidence is shot. Why do I have a feeling if he had never been called up in the first place, this would have never been happening? First sign of something going wrong, he implodes.
Actually, I think his problem now is that he fades after about five innings. I saw it with the Reds -- even in his good games, Bailey weakened later on in the games. He hasn't had a lot of longer outings in his brief career -- another sign that he needs more seasoning.
I doubt that his confidence is shot. He seems like a competitive, confident young pitcher. But he is too young to be a successful major league pitcher right now, needs some work, and should get it at AAA.
