As for the more movement thing, its all a matter of how you look at it. Bailey gets a lot more sink on his FB, but Cueto gets a bit more movement side to side. They are two different types of pitches. And really, they throw about as hard as each other.
And i'm not talking personality.
Homer's biggest problem has almost nothing to do with himself. He's been completely mismanaged his entire professional career. He had no business making that spot start. If the idea was to give him a taste to spur him, well, that was pretty dumb. He's had plenty of tastes, he needs development.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
What's that based on? Bailey's taller? My take on that is "so what?" Does he have more fast twitch muscle fiber? I sincerely doubt it. Does he have stronger legs? No, in fact that's one of Bailey's main problems and Cueto's main strengths. Does he have better core strength or better lung capacity?
Extra leverage never hurts, but, per what you said in terms of arms, Cueto's body has allowed him to the throw quality, consistent major league pitches at a young age. Bailey's body hasn't been able to do that. Cueto might just be a more athletic, stronger guy. I'll take that over height.
