Did I miss something? Sure, he may be a bit immature, but why does everyone here want him to fail so badly?
The Reds are the ones who have screwed up his mechanics. They are trying to make him something he is not. That is why his fastball velocity is down.
Could he handle things off the field in a better manner? Yes, but I believe he will learn from his mistakes. He's still young and dealing with adversity for the first time in his baseball life. Cut him some slack.
If Homer is a bust, it will hurt the Reds for years. You can't keep having 1st rounders bust and have a successful franchise. I believe Reds fans need to get behind this kid and pull for him.
