I wasn't trying to call out what you said, I'm just amazed at the perception and the attitude people have towards certain players.
    I think you are correct, except that Leake surprised early in his career in a positive sense; Bailey surprised early in a negative way.

    So people have a frustration level with Homer they don't have with Mike. I think it's that simple.

    but Bailey continues to disappoint. There's no significant improvement after all his time in the Majors.

    I pay the .99 a month, but it's mostly for HS sports. I only talk Reds baseball on here.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    Phillips up with one out in the ninth. Off the wall. Double.

    That's the kind of AB's the Reds need more of.

    BP doesn't look right at all running.

    Valdez will run for Phillips who is clearly not healthy. Cozart up.

    Hope this hamstring thing with Phillips gets solved quickly and permanently.

    Homer wasn't ready when they called him up and I truly believe that has to do with his early struggles and negative attention from fans. I think it's very unfortunate that they handled him that way.

    The pattern for the Reds is big at bats for Cozart and Rolen with Votto being walked.

    We will see that again, unless Zack does something here.

    A little hit. That's all we ask. Make it a single and make it fast.

    If Homer pitches well, all will be ok. He's still on the team, he's still getting his chances, he can turn the fans around with a solid season.

    Cozart fouling off pitches with man on second, 2-2 count.

    Now a full count to Cozart.

    K looking.
