Nope, was 93-96mph in May and his slider was far better. Since then he has been around 91-94mph and a dull slider.
Again Who, you have to understand, that is all it takes. To say Bailey has not pitched fatigued is rediculous. Not only has his velocity dipped a bit, but his movement has as well on all his pitches. He threw some nasty curves against the Yankees and Braves I am still waiting to see again. He would be on the DL if not for his splitter.
