    It's certainly way too early to give up on Homer, but I've been a skeptic all along. Command is something that's tough to learn and Homer has never really had it.

    Not much to gain from trading any player when his value is at his lowest.

    I'm not making excuses for Homer, but they did ask him to change some things in his mechanics/delivery IIRC.

    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

    Neither command nor stuff. This is ugly.
    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.

    But supposedly his stuff at one point in time was great. And I don't doubt that. I've just never seen it. Now command, he's NEVER had it. And you can't succeed at the ML level without it.

    And it doesn't help his cause that the Reds wouldn't know pitching development if they fell over it.

    But something is definaltey way out of wack with the young lad tonight.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    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 hate to say it, but I agree. This whole Homer thing is definitely confusing.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    Re: Cardinals @ Reds: 6/10/08

    Just don't understand this whole Bailey thing. He was getting hit hard at AAA. His K rate had declined down there, he had pitched several bad outings recently. Why did anyone think he would emerge against major leaguers?

    I don't know what Walt was thinking, but this was kind of inevitable. Just don't get it.
