    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.
    Take a pill, calm down.

    It was his first start in 10 days, he was most likely nervous, wanting to make a good impression. We have to give him a few starts anyway before a determination can be made.

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    Alright, I will admit it as this has gone too far , I hyped up Owings...

    You know Anthony Young went 0-27 before we all finally gave into the fact that he wasn't going to be a Hall of Famer...

    This is hysterical.

    I'm talking about the decision to leave Owings on the MLB roster over Homer...... that wasn't on scouts. That is on the GM and the head coach. Period.
    How can you say that when Bailey hasn't even been around the block long enough to know if he will ever make it again, let alone stick, in the show? Yes, that was on the GM and coaches, and from what they showed in ST and since, it was the right call. We shall all have to sit back and see if it was the right call down the road, but for now, I dont see an arguement at all, except from you.

    I don't know about you guys, but down 4-3 after the sixth inning is kind of optomistic when you look back at some of our past fifth starters. The end result was worse than what Owings' performance led you to believe. I don't understand why you guys aren't giving up on Jared Burton yet.....I mean he only threw 1 inning and gave up four runs. To quick to throw this guy under the bus IMO. Not to mention he saves a roster spot as a pinch-hitter.

    I realize the sky isn't falling....

    But I still believe that what I saw in the crystal ball with Owings is coming. I think the guy is going to get off to a horrid start and Bailey needed to be the 5 starter, not Owings..... it will prove to have been a bad decision and who knows now if we'll get what we should out of bailey....

    My thing on owings last night. Isnt just the fact that he got hit.

    Its the fact that he seems only have one pitch in his pocket. The different forms of a fast ball. I dont see him being able to succeed in the majors with a style like that.

    He got nailed consistently last year in Arizona. He's going to get nailed in GABP as well.

    He was hurt for much of the year last year. He also hasn't pitched to live batters in two weeks or so. I'd do what everyone is asking us to do with Homer Bailey... Have Patience

    Dude, seriously, I think your problem is your using a crystal ball, its 2009, we know better now. Have you seen Baileys start, if you think Owens start last night was horrible, I am curious what adjective you have for Bailey so far this season. i think either or is going to be fine for the long run, and just need to sit back and enjoy-your taking the fun out of it with these rants of yours lately.

    Re: So who hyped up this guy Owings.

    WHat I dont get is all the Homer apologists pointing out that Owings got hit hard last year in AZ (and, thus, presumably, he will get hit again this year). Didnt Bailey get shelled here?? In fact, hasnt he generally gotten shelled EACH TIME he's been given a spot on the big league club?

    I'm not saying he is a bust or will never make it as a Red, but if you have such deep patience for Homer's development, why not have the same patience for Owings'? They're both young. I believe Owings earned the spot this year, and giving up 4 runs last night in his first start is not enough to dissuade me of that position.

    He may have only given up 4 runs. But it could have been much much worse the way the brewers were spraying line shots everywhere.

    ........are you sure you didn't see Volquez in the crystal ball? Or maybe it was Bailey and your man love for him got in the way of your eyesight?
