Yes, there's some GABP effect there. There's also an awful lot of randomness.
Homer Bailey, asked why he''s been so much better away from GABP this season: "Iím not pitching in a Little League park on the road."
So, despite Home's obvious bad attitude about pitching at home, the Reds should use a precious playoff game to attempt to teach him that what he has actually experienced in his much poorer home game performances is actually random variability.
