    Re: Where Should Homer Start in 2006?

    outstanding post M2. And one that is hard to argue against. Pushing a kid to AA before he is ready. Coulda woulda shoulda rotation at AAA this year: Howington, Aramboles, AA: Gardner, Pauly, and Gruler.

    5 arm injuries that can at least partly be blamed on overpromotion and an overall lack of planning when it comes to development of pitching that spans 2 FO's and 2 owners.

    All those guys also got injured. I am not saying we shouldn't learn from the past but you have to give a kid incentive to perform. I'm not saying Homer dominates (2.5 era good control etc...) for 2 months and send him to AA. I'm talking All-Star break which is a good 3/5 of the minor league season. And i am talking dominate. Just because guys have busted in the past doesn't mean you should hold a guy back. I sincerely doubt this is even going to be an issue because i dont see bailey utterly dominating Sarasota but if he does you have to atleast look into giving him 5-7 starts in AA.

    It's kinda like a girl, if you've gotten burnt in the past, do you not let yourself get attatched again in order to not get burnt again?
