    Bad time for a strikeout, but we can also acknowledge that he was batting .400 with RISP before that at bat...right?

    Jake Arrieta has received 8.9 runs of support per 9 innings pitched this season.

    Homer Bailey has received 6 total runs of support. Not per 9 innings, just total. (1.6 R/9 of support)

    Homer made a mistake by resigning with the Reds. Might have been better for his career to go elsewhere.

    With his ERA Bailey would need that run support to be .500. But hey, it was a great deal for the Reds when they signed him.

    No mistake at all. Unless he's allergic to $100 million.

    It was a fair deal at the time and saying other wise is just flat wrong. It hasn't worked out, but that changes nothing.

    Sure he got paid, at a discount, but it would have been better for his career to go elsewhere.

    Probably heading down to the game tonight with a voucher I received. Looking forward to spending a nice evening at the ballpark, even if the product on the field isn't good.

    You should be able to move to the second row with the crowds they’re getting.

    I plan on finding MJ and sitting in one of his sections if (when) I am able to move down.
