    2-1 Pirates after eight.

    The Pirates scored an unearned run thanks to errors by Tatum (catchers interference) and Jacque Jones.

    Bummer about the loss but I do like the pitching line today. That's encouraging!

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Anybody know what velocity Homer is working at? If he's spotting that fastball at 94 or so, that's his ticket. But if he's just getting ahead with a straight 91, that's a hitter's adjustment (or late ST bat speed) away from major regression.
    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.

    Nobody has reported an exact number, but Hal said last week that his velocity looked great.

    Well, considering Hal can't see, I'll wait for a gun reading.

    Truism says pitchers are ahead of hitters at this time. Still, the prospect of Bailey at 91 with control is more promising than 94 without. In other words, he may be intentionally sacrificing some velocity in favor of command. It wouldn't mean he could not reach back for 94 in certain situations.

    Whatever the case, it is very encouraging to read all the positive reporting about Homer. Doesn't mean he's going to win 15 games this year, but it does indicate he has turned around what was significantly negative momentum. Best news of ST, so far.
