Again, from the DDN:
Homer Bailey would have pitched the back end of Sunday’s game, except he showed up Saturday with tightness in his right shoulder.
“You don’t want to say this, but he’s a special (No. 1 draft pick) case,” Powell said. “If he doesn’t feel 100 percent, we’re going to look into it.
“(Today) he’ll go see Dr. (Tim) Kremchek in Cincinnati. I think he’ll be OK and be able to pitch on Saturday.”
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
