    Mostly fastballs I'm assuming? He's gotta develop another pitch to go at the big league level.

    What do you guys think about Bailey in the rotation next year? I know he's young, but Kazmir made the same jump very successfully last season.

    Really? That's great. I know a start or two ago, his breaking stuff was non-existent.

    Let's not get carried away. All that was mentioned is that he froze ONE guy with a changeup.

    and Marty and Fay talked in the top of the second about not seeing how he couldn't be in a Reds uni this season.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Oh, I listened to every pitch and did play by play for Baileys game tonight in the game thread. Bailey froze 3 batters on off speed stuff tonight, and threw quite a few more for strikes. The younger PBP radio guy hardly ever says what a pitch is, the older PBP man does a good job though, so for at least 2 innings you never knew what a pitch was other than a ball or a strike.

    He had a cut on his hand that limited his ability to throw his breaking stuff. Don't read more into it than that.

    I am currently on the ship that doesn't want to rush the kid. However, I have one leg over the side of that boat right now.

    Can anyone tell me what Dontrelle's numbers were like in AA when the Fish called him up?

    He is completely dominating AA. I think at the very least he should be promoted to AAA.

    I'd like to see him in August of 2006 after a few AAA games.
    Who's on first?

    Here was Willis' line in AA before the Marlins brought him up:
    Code:
    Year 	W	L	ERA	IP	H	R	ER	HR	BB	SO	H9	HR9	BB9	K9	WHIP
    2003	4	1	1.49	36.1	24	6	6	2	9	32	5.94	0.50	2.23	7.93	0.91
    Compared to Bailey:
    Code:
    Year 	W	L	ERA	IP	H	R	ER	HR	BB	SO	H9	HR9	BB9	K9	WHIP
    2006	4	0	0.88	30.2	17	3	3	0	6	31	4.98	0.00	1.76	9.09	0.75
    It is worth noting, however, that Willis had thrown 315.2 innings of minor league baseball whereas Bailey has only 216.2 IP. While their level-numbers through 5 games (6 for Willis) are fairly comparable, I feel that Bailey would truly benefit from throwing at least 325-350 innings in the minors before the Reds even consider bringing him up.

    I've always been on the don't rush him boat. But if he continues this kind of domination in AA for the rest of this season and starts off the April and May next season in AAA in the same fashion, then he really has nothing left to prove in the majors. But this year should be completely out, IMO.
