There are a number of players who cause a deep division among Reds fans. Adam Dunn was the best example of this phenomenon, but there are players every year who are beloved by some fans and hated by others.

Perhaps no player on the Reds roster fits that description better than Homer Bailey. He was highly touted, he took two steps back, he showed flashes of brilliance at the major league level, he took a step back, he got injured, he showed some more flashes. Who knows what to expect? Some fans think he’s a cornerstone, some think he should be banished to the bullpen, some think he should be traded as soon as possible.

What’s the Nation’s perspective on young Homer? Is he overrated, underrated, or just rated? What’s his future with the Reds, and what should it be?
