    So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    So here i am excited to see this new talented 5th starter the reds have picked up.

    and what do i get.

    A fast ball or should i say meat ball pitcher. Serving up every pitch on a silver plater for the brew crew.


    What are we going to do about this. Because i dont see this just as a bad start. i see this as a somebody made a mistake with this kid.

    Even I'm not this negative.

    5 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

    That sounds exactly like a line you'd expect from a 5th starter.

    Owings stinks. Look up the posts. I said it in ST and I'll say it again. His future will never be as a starter. He's going to get lit at GABP all season long. Homer should have been here not Owings. 5th place teams make 5th place moves. Owings is nothing.

    I'll be sure to dig up the thread and my post when he's 10 starts in and no sign of the man we saw in Spring Training re-appears. He got lit in Arizona and he's going to get lit here as well.

    It's kinda hard to say that Homer should've been here before Micah right now.

    I'm sure the Louisville guys are wondering why he's even pitching in AAA.

    Fair enough but on a level playing field in a "competition" Homer outperformed Owings and based on age, what we have invested in Homer and ceiling; Homer deserved the spot. There's no debating that.

    FWIW, I think Homer would've definitely performed better up here, but it's hard to argue against the decision right now.
