With his history of injury troubles, you'd think he'd be easy to lock into a deal that buys 1 or 2 of his FA years.
Maturity is a wonderful thing, and Homer is starting to get some and show it. It's easy to forget these guys are just kids, when I consider my own kids who are this age, whom seem so stupid to me (!), I imagine them with a microphone stuck in their face, and hearing what they say on national TV...and I shudder.
