    Where did I say that? How is 5.80 a sub-5.00 ERA?

    And that 2-9 record would depend on what type of run support he is getting. If Owings is 2-9 and losing a lot of games 4-3 or 3-2, then I could care less what his record is.

    At this point I can only assume you are posting inflamatory responses to get others riled up. Either that or you have reading comprehension problems.

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    Daryl Thompson...one good minor league season and an injury waiting to happen and he has passed Bailey as a prospect? Not even close. Thompson will probably be converted to a reliever just so he can stay healthy...if that works...Bailey may never pan out but he hasn't been passed by any of those guys mentioned.

    This thread gets funnier and funnier. How about you don't post about Owings again until his ERA is 5.80 or higher and he has a 2-9 record?

    You turned it into Homer vs. Owings thing first. Don't get on others when they point out that your dog don't hunt.

    Guess this is where I bow out, as I never saw or thought of any hype about him really.

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    I recall a debate between Owings and Bailey during ST about who should be the 5th starter, but I don't think anyone was predicting a Cy Young Award for either. That is a discussion of which player is better, not "hype" for one.

    I got dub your posts on here (of course not that it means jack), so am around enough, adn nope, stil lnever heard much hype. I read plenty between him and Bailey for the #5 spot, but agian, never read it as hype. Again, maybe just my thoughts on a number 5 and expectations and reality?

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    If hoping someone can be a league average starter is hyping him then I am guilty for hyping up Owings I guess.

    Although I would venture to bet that his numbers as a #5 starter are about the average for all #5 guys so maybe I was right.

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    I have heard a lot of hype about Bailey over the years. The only hype on Owings I have ever heard is that he is a great hitter. I think he might be the best hitting pitcher in baseball (IMO), but I did not read (and anymore all I do is read on this site) a lot of hype on Owings pitching. I remember a lot of people talking about how they thought he would do better than last year (as he has recovered from injury) and that he did well in ST. I just think someone is trying to pick a fight at the wrong time. Give him a couple of more starts.

    It's not a certain person. It depends on a lot of circumstances. Could be a midseason signee if the Reds are in contention like Paul Byrd or Ben Sheets. Could be Homer Bailey if he gets things straightened out. Could be a trade that brings in someone.

    I could only find one small thread dedicated to Owings in the last month or so.

    Doesn't seem like a ton of hype to me.
