John that's just mean and cruel showing us stats of a player we won't be seeing anytime soon...Kind of like window shopping, you look in, you want it, you just can have it...

A "not ready" Homer has to be better than what the Reds currently are trotting out there.

I thought for a few minutes Bailey was going to get Friday's start. But I was counting my days wrong. I've got nothing against Bobby Livington or Phil Dumatrait, but I don't think they're going to give this team the kind of boost Bailey might.

Cueto pitches for the Bats??? That must be a misprint!

No misprint. Cueto was brought up to start in Bobby Livingston's place. It's a one-shot deal. He'll go back to Sarasota.
