Jocketty on Bailey
I asked Walt Jocketty before the game if the Reds would consider bringing Homer Bailey up as a reliever:
“I haven’t thought of him as anything other than a starter,” Jocketty said. “I haven’t really talked to anybody about that.”
Bailey is doing what he done the last three years: Dominating in the minors. He’s 2-1with a 1.95 ERA for Triple-A Louisville.
Jocketty brought up Adam Wainwright in St. Louis as a reliever. Wainwright went 2-1 with a 3.12 ERA in 61 games of relief in 2006. Last year, he was 14-12 with 3.70 ERA as a starter.
