Re: Reds vs. Cardinals Monday 4/9
I don't think Bailey's problem is not getting loose, because the big innings he allows are not always in the first inning. He's just as likely to pitch 4 or 5 scoreless innings, and then give up a big number. His problem is once he gets hit hard, he takes it personally and tries to blow the next guy away. So he throws a heater down the middle and the batter jumps on it. That has to be the scouting report on bailey by now.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
