Amidst the kvetching about tonight's loss, I don't want us to forget how dominant Homer was tonight in the biggest start of his life. 7 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 ER, 10 K. Ladies and gentlemen, combined with his last few starts of the season, I do believe the Reds may have done gone and found themselves an ace.
I know RMR and others have pointed to peripherals to claim that Homer's season was actually pretty similar to last year -- and I'm not contesting that. But the last few weeks, he has morphed into something I think we all were hoping he could be one day. Here's hoping that continues throughout October and into next season as well!
