Re: Homer Bailey home/road splits
Beat me to it, CTA, I was just coming here to post that after seeing it on the other board... I've been a proponent of patience with Bailey, and I'd like to see them continue emphasizing his command and secondary pitches. I'm not sure I'd already have him pegged for a promotion -- nothing wrong with him killing High-A for an entire year -- but it probably won't hurt him, because it sounds like FSL hitters can't touch him if he's hitting his spots. And it's good that Alamaraz qualified it, saying he'll move only when he gains more consistency.
Having said that, I like that they've let him lead with his fastball the last few starts. Amid all the other lessons, it's good to toss in "trust your stuff" now and then, too.
Not all who wander are lost
