Season Recap: the 2018 Louisville Bats

Season Recap: the 2018 Louisville Bats

It was a rough season for the Reds AAA club. As a rebuilding squad, the Reds roster in 2018 has generally consisted of younger players. Indeed, their average batter age is one full year younger than the league average, and the seventh youngest in all of MLB. Sure, there’s been a Phil Gosselin here and a Cliff Pennington there, but for the most part, if the Reds deemed a minor league player as close enough, he’s probably spent some time on the roster. Even as Homer Bailey and Matt Harvey have gobbled up a ton of starts this season, it even true for the pitching, as they boast the fourth...

Homer Bailey taken out of Cincinnati Reds rotation

The Cincinnati Reds finally moved Homer Bailey out of the rotation, but it’s too little too late. Homer Bailey is having a historic season for the Cincinnati Reds.

Homer Bailey is finally out of the Cincinnati Reds rotation (for now)

Homer Bailey is finally out of the Cincinnati Reds rotation (for now)

Tyler Mahle will replace him for the time being. There’s not really much more you can say about Homer Bailey these days. Earlier this week, we detailed how he’s been the worst pitcher - by ERA - in the big leagues this year. We also wrote about how he’s been the worst pitcher - by ERA - over the last two, and three years, among the pitchers in this game who have thrown as many innings as he has. This year, in particular, it wasn’t even due to an injury, really, as so many of his other derailments can trace. This year, it was seemingly just because he was confined to throwing...

Homer Bailey’s historically bad 2018 season

Finally able to be on the mound for some time, the Cincinnati Reds can’t be exactly thrilled with what they’ve seen from their “big money” pitcher When Homer Bailey signed a six-year, $105 million contract in February of 204 – the second-largest deal in Reds’ history – the idea was straightforward. “Homer will … anchor […] Homer Bailey’s historically bad 2018 season - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Reds at Pirates Game Three: Preview and lineups and all that

Instead of saying anything about Homer Bailey, I’m just going to put my head on my desk for a bit. Jameson Taillon is finally having the breakout season the Pirates have hoped for for like ever. He didn’t pitch in either 2014 or 2015, you know. It has been a loooong time coming for this kid, and for that I feel pretty happy for him. He has allowed three earned runs or fewer for an incredible 17 straight starts. Historically though, a few Reds have hit him pretty hard. Jose Peraza has a sizzling .526 batting average against him in 19 ABs. Scooter is hittting .370 in 27 ABs. He seems to...

Yep, we’re still watching Homer Bailey pitch for the Cincinnati Reds

Why? You know why. We are just under a month away from the sixth anniversary of Homer Bailey no-hitting the Pittsburgh Pirates in PNC Park, the first of Homer’s pair of no-no’s in his Cincinnati Reds career. I suppose it’s pertinent to keep talking about those two spectacular evenings, since at this point, they’re some of the only real reasons why he’s still getting sent out to the mound every handful of days as a starting pitcher for the Reds. Here’s a quick look at some of the statistics that can best describe what Homer has been for the Reds relative to the rest of the...
