Food analogy time...
Homer Bailey is like pot roast. AAA is the crockpot. More time in the crockpot is always a good idea for better pot roast. If you don't leave the pot roast in the crockpot long enough, or take it out too soon, it doesn't taste very good, and usually is tough rather than tender. Tender is good, tough is bad. We want Homer Bailey to taste good, and be tender.
Or maybe Homer Bailey is like a Bordeaux. If you don't let it age enough, and or properly, it tastes awful. Let Homer Bailey age enough and properly and he should taste pretty damn good.
Bottomline, no incentive to push Bailey, or Cueto, or Maloney, or Bruce for 2008.
