    I created a thread similar to this , but could this start convince Reds management to keep him in AAA?

    Efrain Contreras's bat has been pretty awesome so far in this year's VSL. I would assume we'll be seeing him in the U.S. next year.

    I agree, too much speculation. Keep in mind they sent him back down to AAA just so he could get another start, (eg work on something in particular) We don't know that they may have had him throwing nothing but secondary pitches; curves and change ups. I've seen Homer pitch several times with both good and bad outings and I've never seen him offer any emotion either way. That is one of things that makes him special. I wouldn't start reading too much into this situation, there's a lot we don't know.

    A buddy of mine who was at the game last night told me Bailey's fastball was sitting at 88-90. Could he have a tired arm?

    Im hoping that he threw mostly just offspeed stuff to work on it, not actually pitching his right game.

    I was at the game last night. Homer hit 92-93 about two times according to the stadium gun. His fastball was 89-91. At least a couple of his K's were purely luck - surprising a batter on one occasion with a floating 3-2 changeup in his eyes. To me, he looks as if he's thinking too much and aiming the ball. The last thing I'd be telling him right now is to work on a new pitch. He appears to have lost his confidence/motivation, which is not a good thing, but hopefully the Reds have someone on payroll that can wake him up and get him back to cutting loose on the mound.

    Jay Bruce is the real deal. His play last night was the epitome of "man among boys". Everything he does not the field is absolutely fluid and effortless. I could not have been more impressed, and the kid had a huge smile on his face throughout the game - clearly soaking it all in. As depressed as I was about Homer, I was exponentially more impressed with Bruce. Bailey will shake off his blues, and Bruce is absolutely going to be a star.

    My buddy had the same take after watching Bruce. He called him a "man among boys" as well.

    Hmm, spotty control, lack of movement, loss of velocity -- those are the sorts of things that happen when a pitcher gets injured.

    For all this talk about Homer's attitude, I'm a lot more worried his elbow's about to pop or that his shoulder's about to fray.

    Same here. I'm hoping it's just a "tired" arm but I fear the worst.
