    A triple led to a run being scored on a wild pitch with 2 outs against Scott Carroll.

    Dayton trails 1-0 early.

    Carroll makes Homer look like a superstar even though they are the same age and Bailey can't k anybody in AAA, man is he bad.

    You turned on Bailey really, really fast.

    I am not that down on Homer, but his inability to develope his secondary pitches has gotten annoying. I never was overly worried about command or velocity with him because I figured it was injury related and things became unhinged last year. I figure he will be throwing even harder in a month.

    But he hasn't improved anything else since he has been in the Reds system. That is a lack of effort to do so IMO. It is showing in his AAA numbers just getting by because those AAA guys can't turn easily on your 4 seamer. Blah.

    Have you watched him throw this year outside of spring?

    You obviously haven't seen his new slider. It is looking good. I could care less about K's, "They're boring, and besides that they're fascist!" As long as he is throwing strikes and keeping the ball down, I will be happy, and thus far he has been doing so.

    Craig Tatum is 1-for-1 with a 3-run homerun to give Chattanooga a 3-0 lead.

    Am I the only one wondering about the Frazier to first move? Just for the best guys to play in Dayton or an actual attempt to find him a position?

    I would think first base would be a last resort. I doubt they would permanently move him there already.

    Frazier has really fallen off.

    I'd guess just to get the best players in the lineup. Cozart is supposed to be very talented defensively.
