    I don't know. I'm just saying that the only time I heard speed mentioned the announcers said 94. He did seem to be working on breaking pitches, in my opinion so that may've been why they didn't mention anything else.

    I seem to recall everybody here complaining because the Reds were taking too long to bring Homer up. In fact there were plenty of people who stated that they should have brought him up last year. Now its just the opposite. Everyone is taking the position that he never should have been brought up in the first place. This is what we call "redboarding"

    Votto drives in a run on a broken bat Texas leaguer then gets caught in an FC. 10-2 Durham after 8.

    Bailey was throwing 97 and 98 last year. Just not consistantly.

    Game over in Louisville. Bats lose 10-2

    Homer's final line:

    5.2 IP / 4 H / 5 R / 2 ER / 3 BB / 4 SO / 1 HR

    Votto:

    1 for 3 with an RBI

    Bruce

    1 for 4 with a triple. Hit the ball really hard tonight, one of those outs was feet away from being a HR.

    Hanigan and Dickerson both 2 for 4

    Santos, 1.1 IP, 2 H no Runs

    Aronchis- see, this is why people around here claim that you rub them the wrong way. I'm not suggesting everything needs to be viewed through rosy colored glasses, but here you have a pitcher who you've ragged on constantly in the past, who puts together a stellar outing tonight, and you ignore it. Yet at the same time, you focus all of your effort into chiding Homer Bailey for his poor outing, continuing your doom and gloom forecast.

    I'm NOT suggesting that everything needs to always be peachy around here, but if you don't want to be viewed as just as biased of a poster as the "peachy posters," you should start doleing out respect when it is due.

    Great outing for LeCure tonight.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I want him back in the majors for his next start. He's able to get by in AAA, he doesn't have to improve to get those guys out. The majors are where he needs to make adjustments in order to become a good or great pitcher, and he has to take his lumps at some point.

    Oh, come on. Lecure got praise from me during his last good start.................a few weeks back. Lecure has been nothing but inconsistant. At least Fisher put up several weeks of consistancy before his arm went dead.

    Not on this board they weren't. There were plenty of people wanting the Reds to hold off.

    I suspect that the real reason he was sent down to AAA was not to keep him on his rotation turn, but to get those extra days of service away from counting toward super two status. The fact that he is now having problems lets him take care of that down there away from the bright lights. Homer Bailey is not a unique and delicate snowflake. He is taking his lumps and as long as he is healthy he should emerge better for it.
    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.
