From the DDN:
All of the hitting overshadowed Bailey, the Reds’ No. 1 draft pick last summer, who surrendered five runs (four earned) over just two innings at Burlington in his previous start. Powell thought he might have tried to be a little fine with his pitches in this game, especially when the Bees fouled off so many, wasting much of Bailey’s 75-pitch count.
Bailey didn’t have his good stuff last night, but still impressed me. He seems to have a nice easy “over the top” motion and looked to have a pretty good pickoff move to 1B. He did give up 4-5 hits, but none of them were hit hard, they were dinks and dunks. The Bees could not get the bat around on Bailey at all.
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.
