    The pitch count is nice, as is his box score. But for me, it's that strike to ball ratio. If Homer is above a 2:1 ratio, he's VERY good. Tonight...that's just sick.

    His LD rate is about 35%, which is unreal when the average is about 18%.

    His OPS was 1.066 entering today.

    Bruce finally shows himself to be mortal.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Not really. At GABP it's long gone. So look at it as a perfect night.
