    What happens if..?

    Just when we go on a little tear, the human rally killer toes the rubber. What happens to Belisle if he continues to "stink"? Is it Homer time?

    It's been Homer time for a while now.

    Yeah, but will the guys who make the decisions agree?

    Homer Bailey
    W L ERA SV IP H ER BB SO
    4 3 3.55 0 50.2 48 20 14 40

    Matt Belisle
    W L ERA SV IP H ER BB SO
    1 3 7.45 0 19.1 32 16 5 9

    Comparative over the last 10 games. I'd say it's time for Homer!

    ya know, I always thought Matt would be a great starter...he has that effortless look to him while pitching, alomost AH like, but man ole man does he ever fail. I too hope Homer get sthe nod sooner than later but at this point you have to ask yourself...why has it taken this long to get MB out of the rotation? Why cant Homer come up and sit in the pen and get 7 innings a week(I realize they want to keep him on schedule).
    The writing is on the wall for HB to be in a reds uni but it has been for some time now, so who knows when it will actually happen.

    I thought we wanted to trade Homer.

    If he comes up and does well at the Major league level I would have no problem shipping him if he brought back a key peace such as nice RH bat or a more proven starter.

    That being said I would have absolutely no problem if he was a Red for a long time. Assuming he pitches well.

    I'd be happier if that ERA was lower than 3.55 but I'm still high on Homer nonetheless. Belisle has had more than enough changes and my mind won't be changed if he goes out tonight and pitches 7 innings of shutout ball.

    I just won 2 autographed Homer baseballs on ebay. No trading him now.

    The ERA is a little worrysome. However his SO to BB ratio is very good. Not to mention if we could fastforward MB starts to more accurately compare, I think the numbers would be even more staggering in HB favor.

    gotta be honest, belisle has done nothing to earn his spot. I don't understand it. WHy not see what bailey has the rest of the year.

    I guess the 1st step would be to send Belisle to the pen and send someone like Lincoln down. Homer has more of an upside than Matty B regardless of his ERA.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Belisle get hit around... one more start to get homer up here and solidify the rotation for the rest of the season.

    I still do not think Homer is truly ready
