From July 31-the end of August, he slumped and posted an ERA of 7.01. That can't be put on a catcher. That is on him.
Then, like every September in his career, Homer Bailey turned into an ACE.
You going to believe me or your darn statistics?
Maybe I was influenced by the no-no and the gem in the playoffs. Does anybody know Homers specific stats last year with Mes vs Hannigan?
