    And the start before that, and the one before that, and the one before that, and so on and so forth.

    Homer's reaction after the HR: "I wish I'd just @#$$#$ walked a guy!"

    3 dingers, 2 hits by the pitcher, and walking a pinch hitter who was on the bench for 2 1/2 hours..... not exactly a quality start.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Should've been clearer. He clearly didn't have his good stuff tonight. He needs to be pulled. And he now needs some more runs.
    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

    True enough - but they also have a lot of games against the Cards as well as series' against the D-Backs and the Rangers. Get into 2nd behind them and they can be caught.

    That said, the most important thing is Reds wins.

    Not until the game is lost is Dusty's usual method re: taking out a starter.
    "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."

    This needs to be homer's last batter.

    At what point do you think the human known as David Bailey will progress? Or are the Reds stuck with a guy who has the potential to be an elite pitcher but only performs slightly above average?
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Got to give the SP every possible chance to get a W because that is such an important stat. So much more than team W's.

    Why does Homer have such a long leash?

    Chasing a win for Bailey if the Reds score in the 8th. It's not the first time he's done it with Homer this year.
