I also think confidence has a part in it too. I look for Homer to def. pick up where he left off and have a great start in SD. Big park=Gem from Homer.
    Big Park = Gem for a lot of pitchers. We need to "grade on the curve" for what to expect from our pitchers who start 1/2 their games at GABP. I wouldn't be overly upset with a high 3 to mid 4 ERA from Homer, Leake & Arroyo. The question is do we have the offense to win games with our 3-5 pitchers consistently giving up that many runs? My answer would be yes if we had 1 & 2 hitters with high OBP to get on base in front of Votto. Without that it's somewhat of a crapshoot.

    I'm more amazed by Cueto's ability to not give up the long ball given the home park he pitched in........ maybe they should hold sessions with him explaining how to pitch in a "hitters park"?

    I think, if Homer were pitching for LA, San Francisco, or San Diego, he'd be considered an ace by just about everyone. Dude pitches differently in a big park. (With good reason.)
