If anything, he should realize he would get a chance at some point, and likely soon, and needs to be ready, as it is now, he is prob 3 or even 4 choice to come up on based on performance so far....
Agreed. Owings needs to get it going, but he isn't going to get shelled every time out. Bailey's issues seem to be mostly in his head and if he is not doing well because he didn't make the team then I'm not sure he exactly has the mentality of a big leaguer. His attitude should be, "well... I must have been demoted for a reason, so I'm going to have to work harder to make it back." It seems that Rosales has taken that to heart. The same goes with Gomes w an OPS of .886. Bailey's WHIP is 1.86 in AAA. That is awful. Bailey certainly doesn't seem like a nose to the grindstone guy.
