    Everybody has ebbs and flows. Bailey's fastball has gotten weaker as the year went along while his slider has gotten stronger.

    There in lies the problem. Early in the year, his slider was struggling. Now his slider is killing it and his fastball has declined. You solve that problem and you solve the Homer Bailey issue.

    I think a move to the pen to get max "WAR" from Bailey may be necessary, though Dusty won't hear of it.

    And replace him with who? Wilson Valdez?

    To late in the year to replace him. But next season, yes.

    Bailey just can't pitch at home he's great in non HR parks.

    Why don't we just take our bats and balls and go home.

    Best fastball since the 2nd in weeks from Homer. Making up for a bad bad splitter tonight. That pitch has fallen off since July.

    He won't hear of it because it is a terrible idea.

    He definitely tries to get a bit too cute when in GABP. That I will absolutely agree with.

    His stuff is plenty good enough. He needs to trust himself more at home.

    Valdez and that 431ops is inspiring.

    Stubbs would have never ever made that play.

    My spidey sense tells me Drew will not be a Red after this season no matter what Dusty wants. I think Jocketty will "take care" of it. Bailey and Leake at least provide a +WAR. Stubbs is a blackhole.

    Dusty is probably planning to give him the rest of the regular season off
