Is Homer Bailey the Reds' best pitching prospect in 20 years?
The competition is admittedly pretty thin, but who else even comes to mind as anywhere close to this good and highly touted. I remember John Roper was a big prospect coming up in the early to mid-nineties, but that's about it.
I guess the answer to my question is, absolutely!
I guess the next question is, Is Homer Bailey a top 10 prospect in baseball?
Not to base too much off of one outing, but given his performance last night, I don't see how you could disagree with someone making that argument. He's young (20 yrs old), he has multiple plus pitches, he has good size and has achieved strong success at every professional level thus far, and his fastball hits 98 after 90+ pitches in a game, what else could you want from a guy?
