It seems Homer has found an effective fastball.I believe it was always there,just needed to know when and where to throw it.I still think Hanigan is vastly underrated by most,although Homer's success is mostly his own doing.

Funniest part about it is that 90% of Major League teams would be thrilled to have Leake/Homer as their 4/5 starters (or 5/4 depending on your viewpoint). That we're even having this debate says a lot about where the Reds have come. It sure beats the heck out of Jimmy Haynes and Jeff Austin, Seth Etherton, Elizardo Ramirez, etc.
I agree Brutus,we're blessed to even be having this conversation.It's like weather forecasters;if we have the same weather 3 days in a row(regardless of what it is),they will find controversy to stir up the audience.
