Why is he still going out there?
    Good point. The craziest thing is that Riggleman consistently praises Bailey after each fiasco.

    I wish the Reds would just release Homer and cut him a check.
    Watching him pitch only reminds Reds fans of the worst pitching contract in MLB history.
    The sooner he is out of a Reds uniform the sooner we can move on from it.
    He is just completely horrible. If he wasn't making 20 Million per he would be in A ball somewhere.

    At this point, Brantley would probably leave less of a mess on the mound.

    Literally everyone has made this point lol

    I almost subscribe to the team hating Homer theory, which is only based on fans not liking him, just because it seems their execution when he’s on the mound is awful. Suarez’s error and Billy getting burned for playing shallow had a big effect that inning. A below average pitcher like Bailey is now needs decent defense and some luck to make him usable and instead everything behind him goes awful, every time.

    I'm here in person watching Homer pitch batting practice. When they show the slo-mo replay of the pitches that just got tattooed, it looks like he's their old coach or dad trying to help them win the HR derby. Straight balls down the middle at medium speed. Not so slow that the hitter has to generate all the power.

    Put Homie out of his misery already. Just pay the guy to go home, and get him out of a Reds uniform.

    The way the Reds had to use arms in the Brewers series is Wisler the long man tonight.


    This is probably on the REds advance scouts for not composing a game plan in case the one calling for Bailey to surrender homers does not work.
