I'm not sure why any decision must be prefaced by whether Homer's ERA is above or below 6.00.
It's simple in my view. The Reds should rid themselves of Homer when doing so makes them better.
There are probably numerous scenarios where they wouldn't actually be better and numerous scenarios where they would be better...
