For the record, on a personal level, most of my discussion on Homer this game really isn't directed toward Homer as much as the whole BABIP-lucky/unlucky narrative is a pet peeve of mine. I do think flat out that Homer simply pitched poorly today, but most of my responses had more to do with thinking people take the BABIP defense way too far than wanting to go on the aggressive WRT Homer's pitching.
