and he is Homer Bailey.

7 IP, 2 hits, 1 earned run, and only 93 pitches in a very efficient outing against a patient ballclub.

I love this guy’s makeup, evidenced by this quote:

Through three games, Bailey was asked if the big leagues were everything he expected.

“The bases are still white,” Bailey responded sardonically. “We use wooden bats up here just like we did down there. We have jerseys and cleats. There are a lot more fans and bigger stadiums. That stuff doesn’t play a part when you’re out there playing.”

Long live Homer Bailey.
