For all the hoopla over Homer Bailey in the years since the Reds took him in the first round, he hasn't been worth much more to Cinci this year than Mark Rogers has been to the Brewers. Kind of odd that, despite all that hype, Johnny Cueto and Edinson Volquez (who, to be fair, wasn't in the org until this season) have completely overtaken him.
So yeah, Bailey is 0-5 with a 7.55 ERA this year. He was solid in Triple-A, but has walked guys like crazy everywhere he's been. Going for us this afternoon is Jeff Suppan, who has also been walking more batters than usual, but at least has an ERA under 5, and is coming off his second best start of the year.
Game time is 11:35 CT, and here's the BR Game Preview.
