Homer Bailey makes his return to the big leagues today in an afternoon tilt vs. Phillies ace Cole Hamels. The deck is stacked against Homer, but I’m optimistic that he is going to be the Homer Bailey we all expected him to be.
A win today gives the Reds a split, on the road, with one of the hottest teams in baseball. That’s a great result from this series, as far as I’m concerned.
Ignore your work and discuss the game here….
