    I'm sorry I overreacted a little bit. I agree that Stubbs isn't worthy of a lot of the hype he receives, but what bothered me was that it seemed like you were implying that his 85 at-bats in the AFL should somehow cancel out a lot of the 1,000+ at-bats he's had from Billings to Louisville.

    I didn't mean to imply anything of the sort, just pointed out that the after dinner chocolate he served up in 2008 was Crunchy Frog.

    I don't see anywhere that it has to be a rookie. I see quite a bit of Homer praising. I want to see Homer be successful, but I don't know if he will ever pan out and maybe he will just never pan out in this organization. I think he fits the criteria of this to a tee in fact better than any Reds prospect. After looking at your earlier list, can you tell us who you consider not to be overhyped?

    I believe that Bailey was over-hyped before the start of the 2008 season, but now I would say he's under-hyped. Essentially, the Reds have asked Bailey not to use his best pitch so he could learn to be a more complete pitcher. I'm not going to hold his AAA numbers from the year against him. Toward the end of the year, he was throwing in the mid-90s again. I think he's just a couple years of improving his command and a good pitching coach away from being a #2 starter.
