I'm just saying, evaluating every bad pitch by Homer Bailey by comparing him to Chapman is silly. We know what Homer is. We know what Arroyo is. Chapman is likely a better starter (but not a given). It's not Homer's fault that management wants Chapman in the bullpen rather than starter. Can't we just evaluate Homer on his own merits?
