    Seems like too many fastballs to me.

    I don't want Homer Bailey anywhere near the playoff rotation.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Is it really bad luck when the pitches are right down the middle?

    Homer has gotten squeezed a few times this inning.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Craig strikes out swinging. 3 Ks for Bailey.

    His split/change up is working quite well today. He had Carpenter out in front earlier and just struck out Craig on it.
    This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

    I think you can use him as a tandem starter with Arroyo. Start one of the two, and first sign of trouble, go to the other.

    Geez. I make a statement that came true and now you're badgering me?

    I just don't think Homer has it today.

    Finally one hit at somebody.
    "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."

    Beltran grounds into a force out at short. 3-0 Cards mid 3rd.

    I plan to start a thread soon on how BABIP has become the cop out for bad pitching. This is an example.

    BABIP stands for batting average on balls in play. Homer allowed a high BABIP that inning because he grooved his average fastball right down Broadway.

    Yes, if he was real lucky, those shots might have been hit right at somebody and turned into outs.

    But generally throwing meatballs will result in a high BABIP.
