I really only looked at the Reds guys.
I fully believe you can make a strong argument to include Homer Bailey on the All-Star team.
Here is where he ranks in the National League:
Outside of ERA, he is among the best pitchers in the league in nearly every other category.
Would I put him on there roster? I honestly don't know. But he should be in the discussion.
If there was room for one Red's pitcher, would it be Bailey, Latos or Leake?
