    Homer Bailey to return and start Thursday for The Reds

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...aileys-return/

    The Reds called Monday night’s game with the Houston Astros about 3 1/2 hours before game time. The forecast calls for steady rain all night. ...... Thursday was to be an off day. Homer Bailey, on the disabled list all year, will make his 2011 debut Thursday.

    I'm excited about the return of Homer Bailey. I think he's got a chance to be a difference maker. Here are Homer's stats since May 12, 2010: 76.2 IP, 67 H, 5 HR, 22 BB/70 K, 3.31 ERA. Those are top-of-rotation caliber numbers. For the past three seasons his BB/9 (4.2, 4.1, 3.3) has decreased and his K/9 (4.5, 6.8, 8.3) has increased. I think Homer is going to be a key piece in the Reds rotation not only this season, but for the forseeable future. It's hard to believe he will only turn 25 tomorrow.

    Wow. I honestly didn't even realize (or forgot in the excitement of last season) that his numbers were that good last year. Bring him on!

    I guess Carlos Fisher goes back down to make room on the 25 man roster?
