Like ive said prior. I think homer has a tude problem. And kind of tore himself up over losing the spot this year.
You're right he wasn't "that" bad last year. He had a 7.93ERA. That is not the kind of production I want out of number 5 starter.
He is still only 22 years old. There is plenty of time for him to figure it out still. As for the tude problem, you hit the nail on the head. He does have an attitude problem. And that may have also played a part in why he didn't get the 5th spot. I really hope he is able to bounce back from this horrible start he's had this year and become a productive part of the Reds starting rotation for years to come. But right now he is exactly where he needs to be, in AAA learning how to pitch and deal with adversity.
