Then add in even the slowest runners steal steal him blind and not a very good pick off move for obvious reasons. Other than that, he's perfect.
    Just absurd.

    I have said it earlier, I like this team, they are young and playing hard, they will have struggles at times, if they didn't have to play the Cubs and Indians around 20 plus times this team would be over 500 in my opinion. If they could go 500 against these 2 teams they may surprise some more people.

    I think whether they stay over .500 or not will come down to the Bullpen, we have a nice lineup, we have good SP in Garrett, Feldman, Finnegan besides his last start, & Rookie Davis is decent, and whenever Desclafani comes back that will make our Rotation even better. But I think it comes down to the Bullpen, and I'm hoping they keep playing great, so I think we stay above for the rest of the season.

    19 games versus the Cubs, only 4 versus the Indians

    My heart says maybe all season but my head says maybe sometime in May. I feel confident, however, that this team will not lose 90 games as many were predicting. Prognostications of 90-100 losses are looking more and more like premature jocularity.

    Nothing absurd about it. Where is he now? He won't throw a no hitter on the DL.

    Pretty sure the caught stealing falls mostly on the catcher, not the pitcher.

    Well, I guess you blew your "even the slowest of runners steal him blind and he doesn't have a pick off move" argument out of the water. Good thing we have a hall of fame catcher making up for Homer's deficiencies.

    Claiming his fastball doesn't move is beyond absurd.

    Homer Bailey pick offs:

    2007-1
    2008 -0
    2009-1
    2010-1
    2011-1
    2012-0
    2013-0
    2014-1
    2015-0
    2016-0
    Obviously, if your on the DL.......................

    For Homers' 10 year MLB career, 5 pickoffs total. This would indicate that he doesn't have a good pickoff move.

    Or that he never has anyone on base, he did throw 2 no hitters.

    Or it's really good and they don't test him.
