    Homer Bailey agrees to a contract; $2.3M bonus

    From the Enquirer:

    NO. 1 PICK AGREES: First-round draft pick Homer Bailey has agreed to terms with the Reds.

    Bailey, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound right-handed pitcher from LaGrange, Texas, was the seventh overall pick in the June draft.

    "It took a little longer than I thought, but I'm very happy," Bailey said Saturday evening. "I'm looking forward to getting started."

    Bailey was 14-0 with a 0.67 ERA with 187 strikeouts in 85 2/3 innings in the regular season. He was the USA Today High School Player of the Year and had received a college scholarship offer from Texas.

    He will come to Cincinnati Monday to sign the deal.

    Bad news for the folks who were thinking/hoping the Reds wouldn't sign him so they could jump on DanO, Allen and Lindner.

    Yep, until the Reds spend $100M on payroll, they're fair game.

    For the life of me, I will never understand why you get snippy whenever someone doesn't kiss the FO butt. You love them, I don't. Move on. It's not the end of the world.

    Oh and find a thread where I said they need to spend 100 million.

    Good to hear.

    Now send him to the GCL league and let him pitch about 40 innings and then sit him and have him ready for Dayton next year.

    Better news than even a trade IMO.

    (Well depending on the trade )

    Now, shall we start taking odds on how long before Bailey has his Tommy John or Labrum Repair surgery?
