    Re: 6/26/13 - Reds @ Athletics

    Reds in June: .239 .305 .390 - 695
    85 runs in 23 games, not including today. 3.7 R/g.
    BABIP is low (.276) but I'm not even sure regression to .290 or whatever it is for the season is enough to fix that line.

    It sucks anytime one of your pitchers doesn't have a good start, but alarming? Not so much.

    "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."

    Oh, ok.

    But I mean, he's had only 1 QS against those teams and that was his last outing. THat's a bit concerning to me when you're pitching that poorly against teams you'll play this year in October.

    Well, assuming this currently pretending team gets there.

    Ugh, Cozart.

    Is it a team wide lack of focus?

    You are right. If he merely had "a" bad start, there would be no reason for alarm. However, as was posted, Bailey is struggling every time he faces quality competition this season. This does not seem to be an isolated incident; more like a pattern.

    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

    Okay, I'm here now...let the Reds scoring commence.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    2 outs RISP -- can we expect good results?

    Bad offense, or just a really good pitching job? I'm seeing lots of off-speed stuff and breaking balls thus far.

    Darn. K to end the inning.

    4 base runners in 7 innings...it's like the Reds have given up.
