I haven't heard, but the Arroyo experiment is hopefully over, correct? He cannot get HS hitters out. Nice guy, hard worker, great career. He can have a career in broadcasting or whatever, but he's done as an MLB pitcher. Which I think we all agreed on in February.

He's on the DL and pretty unlikely to return.

The guy who doesn't walk anybody comes up and walks five in five innings. Still a decent debut though against such a good lineup. Bullpen is starting to get worn out it seems

Insane that this team was only a game below .500 two weeks ago

Nerves. I thought he battled pretty hard. So I'll give him that. He didn't give into Harper with two on and got the pop up.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Best team in the league because they're always having fun!

Scooter has definitely been fun to watch. What a great distraction.

I've always liked Homer Bailey and at the time of the contract, I thought it was a decent signing because he had been improving each year, with gradual improvements in WHIP/ERA/K rate. 2012-2014, despite being about .500, he had ERA around 3.6 and WHIP around 1.15. Solid pitcher. Also, we knew that Cueto was out of our price range, so I was OK with the signing. History says never long term sign a SP, and hindsight says history was right.

He will probably bounce back from Saturday's terrible outing and have a few good games this year, but it was sure discouraging...

The most disappointing part is I couldn't tell if Homer was having any fun or not.

I would think so, he was moved to the 60 day DL. Quite a comeback for the guy. He underwent shoulder and elbow surgery and made it back to the majors. One of the nice stories of '17.

Post was made in regards to AS voting. It is no big shock considering the Reds are a bad team, that Votto would be behind all of those guys in AS voting. Actual play is a completely different story.

Was at the game Friday in DC. Castillo was consistently between 96-99 MPH, just struggled with spotting the fastball. Nice changeup and slider. Really survived 5 innings, could have been alot worse.
Lorenzen was the disappointment. Reds were up 5-2 after 5 and a half. Should be able to hang on with our bullpen this year.
Tough return for Homer, but we have to ride this ship. He felt good the next day so that's the best sign. I'd like to see Homer get 10-15 starts the rest of the season and I think the pitching will come around.

Could not have wrote this better myself. There was no way the Reds could sign Cueto to the kind of money he was asking. Bailey was the better option, and cheaper. Alot of others only look at trades in hindsight.

I hope they make a movie about it. It has all the feels.
