    Pete Rose is a jerk. That fact is irrelevant to Homer being a jerk too.

    You have to give mad props to the K.C. front office for turning Homer by himself into something useful. They didn't have to eat any salary or give up anything else. Of course he was healthy all year and actually pitched well at times.

    His K's have increased this year, but so have his walks.

    He's as likely to post a 5.00 ERA the rest of the way as not.
    but his zBAVs are WAY up!

    it's amazing what a change of scenary can do, plus giving one the desire to prove the former team as idiots. success is the best revenge.

    True. It also helps to be healthy and pitch your home games in a big ballpark.

    Homer now has 8 wins. Regardless of what his metrics say that’s pretty amazing.

    tends to happen when your club average nearly 6 runs of support per start

    I am sitting in Minute Maid Park watching Homer not able to get past the 3rd inning. Couldnt happen to a nicer guy. (Sarcasm alert)

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me
