    Homer to start Friday

    Like 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, and no runs wll he finally get the call? Krivsky or anyone really couldn't use the control excuse anymore. I think Saturday June 16th is a good target date to get Bailey his first start.

    I really do doubt that. What more does he have to prove at the AAA level? As long as he maintainsn decent control. If you call him up now it doesn't count vs his service time either.

    Lets let him prove himself in the minors until he hurts himself and Doc Hollywood has to fix him.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    If he is brought up before July 1st or somewhere right around that date I think he would be a Super 2 come 09.

    6 innings 7 hits, 3 BB 8 K's, 4 ER tonight. Is that good enough?

    Marty thinks what Homer did today is good enough to have him come up next Saturday.

    Homer to Start Thursday?

    So, was looking at the game notes, and the Reds have Thursday's starter as TBA. Because of the way the rotation worked with the off day and the demotion of Livingston, I think we all assumed that would be a spot for Kyle Lohse, today's starter. But they could give Belisle the extra rest. If they called up someone from Louisville, today's starter is one H. Bailey. Of course, I could be reading waaaaaay too much into this. Just some conjecture. And that's all that is, mind you. But interesting nonetheless.

    Homer gave up a homer and three runs in the first, so maybe we did get ahead of ourselves. It's 3-3 in the third in Durham.
    Great point by Trent. IF Homer pitched Thursday, he would be going on his normal rest.

    Stats are one thing..... was he hitting his spots? You can get away with mistake pitches at the AAA level but at the major league level mistakes end up 450 feet away. This isnt a baseball sim.

    Re: Homer to Start Thursday?

    Or not.

    POSTGAME: Jerry said Thursday would probably be Lohse, and then Homer, Dumatrait or Santos on Saturday. I'd put my money on Homer. Looks like a home game I'm gonna have to go to. Thanks Homer.
    So much for that idea. Guess Trent was wrong.

    I just don't want to see Santos or Dumatrait starting.
