    Oh well. He threw great in the spring. I almost knew this would happen somehow. Almost like he went down with a chip on his shoulder. Lets hope it doesn't become a pattern.

    If he went down with a chip on his shoulder he should have come out and done well. It sounds like he went down feeling sorry for himself.

    entirely possible for a 22 year old kid. He had a great attitude all spring and probably feels a little bit like "what did that do for me". Just my guess.

    Re: Homer gets rocked

    So, he joins every other starter for the REDS so far this season. 4 Outings, and 4 poor performance....Harang, Volquez, Arroyo, Bailey.

    I'll take my chances that at the end of the year, the REDS win 87 games. That may not make any playoffs, but it'd be a great season.

    And just what was so BAD about Harang's outing. He pitched a great game IMO, he just happened to have the bad luck of going up against one of the best in baseball.

    It's a marathon not a sprint. Homer as plenty of time to get it going.

    Re: Homer gets rocked

    Pretty much the Homer I'm used to. He always gets rocked and is overrated.

    I can't wait until some other team overvalues him and we get a real player in return.
    Who's on first?

    No kidding. I'm no scout but I feel confident in saying that Bailey could at least match the poor performances we've seen so far.

    All that talk of building around pitching and the scary thing is we really don't have much.

    Re: Homer gets rocked

    22 years old and it's over... The Reds have one of the better pitching staffs in the NL. So, they didn't start out 5-0 with 5 shutouts...I guess I'm not as surprised by that as y'all seem to be...Bailey has a ton of talent and he deserves patience from us fans. He has a real shot at being a #1 or #2 starter by the time he is 25. There aren't many pitchers like that available.

    I would have like to see us do what the Mariners did to begin the season and the way they did it. But, oh well.

    Re: Homer gets rocked

    You can't give up on pitching, especially when you are 22. Look at what Loshe is doing, we gave up on several pitchers around the league that are now starters. I'd say after his spring he got a pick up in value. A couple minor league starts won't end that. At some point the Reds will need him this year.

    That's not the issue with Bailey and the Reds. The problem is he's burnt his last option. He's got this season to thrive in the majors or the Reds are looking at trading him for whatever they can get.

    And if he doesn't stop bursting into flames every time he goes to the mound for Louisville that will probably hasten his exit.
