    I know that the strikeouts are being talked about on another thread but that was just sick. That sounds like Clemens stuff there.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Bombastic Bailey

    Baker told pitcher Homer Bailey this spring, when he was sent down to Class AAA Louisville, "Make us notice you. Go down there and win a seven in a row."

    Bailey is trying his best with the "Hey look at me" approach.

    He was named International League Pitcher of the Week when he went 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA, striking out 18 in 12 1/3 innings, including nine in a row at one point. He struck out 15 in 6 1/3 innings Sunday against Toledo.

    "That's great," said Baker. "We're pulling for him. Big-time."

    Matt Fairel, who started two games for the Dragons last week, posting a 1-0 record with a 1.38 ERA, was named the Midwest League pitcher of the week. He allowed just two runs in 13 innings and struck out 20, including 12 in six innings against Great Lakes.

    It would be a good time to trade Bailey for that RH bat we need.
    Who's on first?

    not only would that be foolish (do you forget the kid is only 22 years old???), but trades as such simply don't happen this early in the year.

    Nice to see him get that ERA down to the 6.90 area and that WHIP down to the 1.51 area.

    It may very well be foolish, in fact I probably wouldn't do it myself. However the way things are economically and how difficult it is to pry young players, especially pitchers away from teams right now GM's might be willing to pit fight for the chance to make a deal.

    2nd game of a double header. Minor league double headers consist of 7 inning games.

    Second game of a DH. In the minors, if its a DHer, each game is only scheduled to go seven.

    So he threw a complete game (DHer style).

    Homer Bailey, RHP, Reds (Triple-A Louisville)
    After striking out a career-high 15 in his last start, Bailey was more efficient on Saturday night, delivering a seven-inning five-hit shutout against Buffalo. Much of his success can be attributed to mechanical changes, or, more accurately, his reverting to his former delivery, which puts more downward bite on both his fastball and breaking ball. There's no immediate, obvious opening in the Reds' rotation right now, but when one does arise, Bailey could finally be ready to step in and live up to his once mighty promise.
