    This season could be an aberration. This could be the only meaningful season we have in the near future. Bailey’s value could never be more important that now.

    I’ve watched Homer’s last 3 home starts. While I sure hope the correct decision is made regarding his long term development, it appears the only reason to stay at AA would be to help the Lookouts win the SL championship.

    Then the question becomes,if he’s going to keep pitching this season, should he be helping the Reds?

    The Lookouts go on the road after tonights game. I’ve got a hunch Homer won’t be on the bus.
