    Homer should try getting into some 3-0 counts.

    Weeks walks. Should've been gone. No clue where that 2-2 pitch missed.

    This is pitiful.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Sounds like Homer has absolutely no advantage with two strikes on people.

    Ramirez pops up to Votto in foul ground to end the inning. 3-0 Brewers.

    And all of this, again, after the first two were retired. Homer needed 67 pitches to get six outs. Unacceptable.

    Is any of this related to Mes?

    That's part of it, but the Brewers are wasting a LOT of good pitches. Homer has good command of the zone from what I'm seeing. But they're working the count pretty well.

    He's also made a couple of poor 2 strike pitches, like that one to Braun just now. Hung a breaker there.

    Overall, he's not really pitching poorly, he just can't put guys away for some reason. He's throwing strikes, so that's not the problem.

    67 pitches, 43 strikes, 24 balls. Not a bad ratio at all.

    Welsh noted that Homer has been shaking Mes off a bunch so far. Not sure if that means anything.

    I think it's more the fact that Homer's breaking ball isn't great today and the Brewers hitters are doing a great job of wasting pitches.
