    Janish with the sac... Sure would be nice to have a hitter in the 2 hole... Here comes Griffey to make it 5-4...

    I agree. I can't blame the Reds because Bailey isn't a fully formed pitcher at age 22. His command issues, his pitch selection, all that will come with experience.

    The problem I see is that his velocity seems way off. I'm willing to let Bailey mature if the stuff is there, but where's the stuff? Injury? Mechanics? That's the concern.

    Homer (and most human pitchers) are going to struggle transitioning to the big leagues. If we had a real soild pitching development staff maybe that transition goes a little more smoothly.

    It's just one aspect of the overall "Homer" situation.

    That was my only point.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    I agree completely.

    Bailey had previously been a high velocity guy who was wild. Now he's a low velocity guy who's still wild.

    I'd much rather him go back to being high velocity and wild than pedestrian (as you accurately described him) and wild.

    I'm hoping by the time he gets to age 23 he's back to high velocity.

    Brandon should not bat cleanup against righties. Poor lineup construction strikes again.

    Giving away outs with the top of your order, while trailing by 3 runs in the 5th inning... have to love the self-defeatism that is Dustyball. Meanwhile, the major run scoring in this game has resulted from big blast(s) following *walks*. But, by all means, throw some more Outs away while trailing.

    We get 4 innings of LaRussa manging his bullpen.

    This one is going to go 4 hours.
