Re: Homer Bailey to return and start Thursday for The Reds
I'm excited about the return of Homer Bailey. I think he's got a chance to be a difference maker. Here are Homer's stats since May 12, 2010: 76.2 IP, 67 H, 5 HR, 22 BB/70 K, 3.31 ERA. Those are top-of-rotation caliber numbers. For the past three seasons his BB/9 (4.2, 4.1, 3.3) has decreased and his K/9 (4.5, 6.8, 8.3) has increased. I think Homer is going to be a key piece in the Reds rotation not only this season, but for the forseeable future. It's hard to believe he will only turn 25 tomorrow.
I miss Adam Dunn.
