    I look forward to seeing Homer Bailey vs. Brewers on July 28

    I was wondering if the Reds wouldn't start Homer in two games vs Brewers on 22nd and 28th, just because they need to know where they stand going into July 31 trade deadline.

    I was wrong about the 22nd, but still wonder about the 28th.

    Bailey family should be on standby

    Stop wondering, he ain't starting anytime soon.

    that's good to know. I'd miss Mays in that spot. He's allowed me to relive the best moments of Dave Williams

    It must be discussed.

    I'm sure it will be discussed...but it will probably be nothing more than that right now.

    But....you never know!

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    After seeing Mays in person for the 3rd time this year I am for anything that keeps from seeing him agWhen you ain't good enough to pitch for the Royals, you ain't good enough to pitch for ...

    I'm all for replacing Mays but not at the expense of Homer Bailey. The earliest we should see Bailey is around June 2007. We have a gem. Let's not have another first round pitcher blow up on us!

    Not just yet, I think, but the pressure will keep building if Homer keeps dominating - my qualm is that he is using his fastball and in your face aggressiveness to get it done. That won't be enough in the majors. He'll get some big K's but ML hitters will eventually hammer him if he doesn't have quality secondary pitches to set up his heat. From all reports that's why Krivsky isn't ready to promote him yet.

    If the Reds are going to call up a live armed prospect I'd rather see Dumatrait - he might be ready for a look anyway, he's a bit older and more experienced. His numbers aren't good enough to knock the door down but he absolutely can't do worse than Mays. Worst case is he gets some exposure, ala Ramirez, and comes back next year with a much better idea. I just wish you could combine Elizardo's mental makeup with Dumatrait's arm.

    Germano would be the safer choice but I've got no confidence his stuff is good enough to be any better than Mays or Belisle would be.

    Maybe a better question is when will Bailey go to AAA?
