    Re: Homer Bailey

    Tracy Jones was harping tonight about how he should be brought up after 3 more AA starts. Don't you wish he was the GM?

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I think it's a great way to reward a guy for an impressive season and get him used to how things work in the big league level.

    Not saying I want him taking the hill every fifth day, or at anytime this season, but bringing him up to be part of the team doesn't have a whole lot of downside to me.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    It starts his free agency clock. Arbitration sooner, larger dollar amounts sooner, free agency sooner.

    One month doesn't sound like much...but if you bring him up in September this year and after the break next year...you've likely accelerated the clock enough to have an impact.

    I wouldn't bring Homer up till he was ready to pitch regularly.
