Bad night for Bailey

Homer Baiely gave up seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits for Louisville againstr Rickmond. He gave up five in the fifth. It's the first time in eight starts that Bailey has gotten beaten up.

Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer.

The Bats ended up winning 10-7. Gary Majewski got the win in relief. Paul Janish hit a two-homer in seventh to tie it. The Bats scored two in the eighth as well.

Any chance the Reds can palm Cory off on the Jays now that Vernon Wells has broken his wrist? They took Buck Coats & Ray Olmedo.

I'm off the ledge. He's allowed to have a bad start or two.

Keep you eye on Jordan Smith, he just made his 3rd straight 8+ inning effort giving up one run per!

As Homer was struggling, Jordan Smith was moving to the top of the Reds pitching prospect list while earning his sixth win for the SaraReds. He is now 6-1, his lone loss was 1-0 vs Tampa. Jordan has started eight games. He has pitched 56 innings giving up 46 hits while walking only FIVE and has struck out 35. Tonight he gave up a run with two out and two strikes on the last hitter faced in the ninth (APP 90 Pitches).

In the past Bronson has shown that once he puts together an excellent start that he has a great chance of throwing 4 or 5 more before the inevitable stinker comes for any pitcher. Let's hope this is the start of something good! To have 4/5 of your rotation rolling would be very good news for this team.

Danny herrera (the "other guy" in the Volquez/Hamilton deal) is also pitching great in the minors. He pitched 1.2 innings today, 0 ER, and has a 0.00ERA in 11.1 inings. Between him, Bailey, Daryl Thompson, and Smith, the future Reds staff looks good so far!

At this point, I would trade Patterson for a carton of stale Marlboro's and a pack of wet matches. Get him out of here and get Freel in center. Bruce comes up when we deal Griff or Dunn!

How hard was Bailey throwing? Any signs of that great fastball he was noted for when he dominated everywhere he went up until his call-up last year. He has not been the same since. The Reds screwed with his mind or mechanics or it could be something physical. If you remember, he even got so pissed off at the Reds that he went home to Texas for awhile.

I am a Homer Bailey fan I would love to see him make it here and make it big. I just call em like I see em and I am rarely wrong. But there is something wrong with Homer Bailey. He will not help the Reds at this point.

Wanna argue with me about SS anymore?

I went to the Bats game, we won 10-7 like it says here, Bailey looked terrible but I dont like him anyway so im glad. Majewski looked impressive 6 up and 6 down. Janish homerun gave the BATS the LEAD not just the tie, then they got two more runs as they intentinally walked bruce and Andy Phillips hit a 2 run double. That was a fun game GO BATS!!!
