He's got the physical ability. It's always, at least for him, to be the mental toughness/intelligence, to step it up a notch when he needs it.

    Bailey is asked to take a shower. JJ Hoover coming on with the bases juiced.

    All I'm saying is that Homer needs guidance - more so than do the other four starters - and these coaches have failed to give it to him.

    When he strikes somebody out we should all type "how sweep it is".

    Bailey was rushed in 2007 and Pole screwed up his mechanics in 2008 and he threw like garbage. Neither are those 'starts' worth much.

    If you look at Homer's good/bad things it is throwing hard through 100+ pitches and bad frontal mechanics. He has improved his frontal mechanics slowly over the years, but his throwing ability seems to be untapped potential. I don't know what the problem is, but the Reds are not getting the best stuff out of him. If he can throw 95-96 in the first, he can damn well the whole game with his 4 seamer. I think he needs another organization's pov. It does beg questions with our last 1st rounder as well, who is a somewhat similiar type.

    All I know is Walt will have to make upgrade moves this year sadly... AND Phillips is making us look silly after that extension, no offense and his "D" has been purely average or below

    Hoover is gonna make a great closer because he does not give a dam.

    Pitching has to let us down on some days.
