And he's not pitching awful today. He just had one really bad inning. I get that. I still think Bailey will be fine this season, but he's been a big disappointment through the first half of the season. I was expecting a lot more.
I expect a hole in one on every par three and birdies or eagles everywhere else -- but my expectations rarely meet my reality ---
Homer's numbers this year stack up nicely --- he has pitched far better than his W/L record shows -- I'd be happy to see him pitch with the Reds for several more years
Bruce -- in complete bum mode today
