Not to say Homer is going to dominate from here on out but I think its safe to say we have been getting to see what the scouts see and what a lot of us who hang out in the minor league forum have said about what type of pitcher Homer is.
My thoughts on tonights game was its about time Homer took the fastball and worked off it instead of trying to work off the breaking pitches. He has always been a fastball 1st and keep you honest off the breaking balls in the minors but once he came up he would try to be too fine and try to fool batters way too often. He turned into Aaron Harang instead of staying the Josh Beckett, both ways work but Bailey is suited to be the latter obviously. His fastball is finally showing up like it was when he was in the minors, and doing it late into games like I used to see watching his AAA games. I'm excited as anyone can be now that we are seeing the Bailey I thought we would see.
Anyone else starting to understand why there was so much hype?
