    Bailey to Louisville...

    Fay's blog:

    The Reds optioned Homer Bailey to Triple-A Louisville. No great surprise. Rotation will be what we've been saying:

    Aaron Harang
    Bronson Arroyo
    Johnny Cueto
    Josh Fogg
    Edinson Volquez

    At this pace the Reds will get down to 25 men by Memorial Day.

    I still don't quite understand how/why Fogg deserves to be 4th over EV.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    In case the kids falter, the bullpen doesn't get overused on back to back days. It's kind of a lame strategy because the odds of Fogg faltering are equally as high (if not higher).

    Soft-tosser between two hard-throwers maybe?

    I don't understand why Cueto is 3 and Volquez is 5 given their ages and experience levels.

    Fogg is splitting them up to get maximum advantage of keeping lineups off balance of the difference in type of stuff (finesse vs power).
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'm hoping Homer Bailey gets it figured out @ Louisville in 2008, so the Reds will be a better team in 2009.

    The rotation could be devastating in '09 if he does.

    I hope he gets it figure out in 08 so we will be a better team in 08. Why wait til next year if he gets straight sooner?

    That's what I'm counting on.

    The Reds v. 2008 isn't a .500 team, let alone a playoff team, with or without Bailey.

    The Reds v. 2009, however, should be NL Central pennant winners with a Rotation of Arroyo/Bailey/Cueto/Harang/Volquez.


    If the Reds thought that having Bailey and Bruce on the 25 man in 2008 would put us in the playoffs, they'd both be here on Opening Day.

    They'll both spend Opening Day in Louisville.



    Only 370+ days until the Reds' NL Central pennant winning season begins.

    I'd like to see Cueto and Volquez flip flopped as well.

    Re: Bailey to Louisville...

    To have Volquez 5th and Cueto 3rd is simply idiotic. If anyone should be the 5th starter between those two, it is an absolute no-brainer for it to be Cueto.
