    I hope he sticks to his gun and does NOT bring him up.

    Hope you're not holding your breath waiting for this to happen. You could get serious brain damage from holding it for 13 months.

    I would love to see Homer make those last 4 starts by the "5th" starter...

    In 12 AA starts covering 68 innings Homer allowed 8 earned runs 1.05 era. In 68 innings allowed only 46 hits , 24 walks and 77 strikeouts. If he won tonight he'd be 6-0 in AA , not sure what else he'd need to do to impress.

    With this fine offensive display on the left coast, why subject him to this?

    Surely couldnt help Homers confidence. Lets look ahead for a change.

    As much as I have been a supporter of keeping Homer down all year - I'm beginning to wonder if he's just the kind of jolt this team needs. Remember Krod coming up for the Angels? When rosters expand, I'm wondering if it wouldnt' be good to bring him up and give him a cup of coffee. In limited work of course.

    Re: Get Ready for Bailey!!

    I wonder if somebody could present data on the first 5 major league starts of pitchers who dominated double A, then skipped Triple-A. It may not be pretty.

    I know it's trendy these days to say that Triple-A is inferior to Double-A. I don't buy it. While there might be more "high ceiling" guys in Double-A, the level of play is noticeably better at Triple-A. Relevant to Bailey, there are more guys at Triple-A who can punish a pitcher's mistakes.

    That being said, Bailey might be ready. The Reds just need to proceed with caution, which it's clear to me that Krivsky has done.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Re: Get Ready for Bailey!!

    Triple A is Jerry Narron's wet dream. Where all players are scrappy. Jerry picked the wrong level to manage.

    Oh yeah, I think AAA would be a interesting challenge for Homer, but considering the innings he has thrown, make it next year when he is 21(or close to it).
