    actually his fast ball is topping out at 95 tonight...good stuff actually. But Arroyo proved again last night you throw fast for show...you actually pitch for dough!!

    Homer needs to learn how to actually pitch in the big leagues. He's been a big league pitcher since 2008...he is what he is.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    They go over how to work every hitter before the game. I am sure they can ask Price between innings. It shouldn't be that hard.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    This time it was a Curveball that just floated over the middle of the plate. You're right. Homer does not pitch smart. Never has, which makes me think that he never will. Talent isn't enough to pitch well in the Majors. You have to pitch smart. If Bailey doesn't get it this year, I don't think the REDS are going to keep him after this. What else can they teach him at this point? It's on him to wake up and not pitch like an idiot.

    Bailey is a notorious slow starter. He struggles to hold his stuff early in the year and is breaking stuff is erratic. See 2006,2009. Then it comes together.

    Plus these are meaningless spring games.

    Yup, and he isn't throwing well. Throw well, problem solved. Alot of good "pitchers" are great throwers first.

    no - he's definitely a pitcher, with great pitches too

    it's on management for not giving him the coaching necessary to teach him what to do in situations like this

    Mesoraco has no understanding how to get big leaguers out which, being a rookie, I understand.

    Doesn't help to catch a guy that has zero confidence in his own ability either.

    You know that could be it, that they're just sticking to the gameplan. That's not a terrible thing but I just think that you pitch to the situation there, not the gameplan.

    He's an adult. A big league pitcher. There comes a point that you have to do it. This is not little league. He has the ball in his hands. Leake is younger, smarter, and does not have nearly the arm Bailey has. Leake has gotten the message...Bailey has not.

    Takes at least two years.
