Questioning it seemed to make it happen.
Let's try another one:
Has Jay Bruce hit a home run this year?
Homer is getting mentally tougher, nice to see some maturity.
I was not too worried when they did not score too much the last 2 games....but this getting sad. Not facing great starters here at all.
He just punched out Ruggiano with his best fastball of the day...94mph at the knees on the outside corner.
"Okay you guys, pair up in threes!" --Yogi Berra
nice.... last FB at 94 mph. high water mark for today.
Finally an easy inning for Homer. Hopefully he's got one more in him.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
well, although struggling with command of splitter and FB, he has the curve ball working....
I'm just impressed as hell that on a day where he's clearly not at his best, Homer still has 8 strikeouts thru 5 innings.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Following this on MLB gameday. For anybody watching the game, what's the deal with the weak outs in the past few innings? Does Sanabia just have the Reds that off-balance?
