He went five. I watched the game.

His curveball had some sharp break but he had trouble throwing it for strikes. When it was a strike it was right down the middle.

He throws a cutter that had good movement and his fastball was looking shrp. Struck out Sizemore twice. And Blew his fastball by Victor and Hafner a few times.

He had some jitters and had a little trouble throwing stikes, but he looked pretty good.

The stat line isn't a good representation because he was hurt by his defense twice on plays that were not errors, but cost him. One on a throw to home that went over the cut mans head. Had they hit the cut that surely would have had
hafner at the plate.

High pitch count forces him out after 5.

Overall grade: B-

He looked a lot like Christian Bayo now that he cut his hair if you ask me... and he's probably now the biggest Texas county hick in baseball. His favorite hobby is cleaning antique rifles.

On the mound I think he has Aaron Harang like stuff. He's got the same kind of swing-and-miss fastball. His curve can be wicked too, but it's obvious he has no idea where it's going, and his change up needs a lot of work.

He looked REALLY nervous out there at first. I'd temper your expectations for him in 2007. I don't think he has the polish yet.

I haven't seen him yet but your assessment matches the scouting reports I've seen so far this year.

Narron says Bailey needs to be a little more efficient

On Saturday, the Reds rookie starting pitcher also was reminded of the season-high 114 pitches he threw over five innings.

“My arm really isn’t sore,” he said. “It’s more your back and your legs.”

..."The big thing he’s going to have to do is pitch ahead in the count a little better,” Reds manager Jerry Narron said. “I know they’re going to foul a lot of balls off just because of the stuff he has. But to be able to go deep into games, he’s going to have to be more efficient.

“If not, we’re going to have to get him up to about a 150-pitch count. I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

I watched every pitch and he looked good considering it was his very first start in the majors against a hard-hitting team. Control was decent but definately needs work and the change-up was a mess. His best pitch by far was his fastball. He threw it for 94-96, located it well, and blew it past some very good fastball hitters. Personally, I was surprised at the pitch selection. I would have thrown more FB until they proved they could hit it consistently (which they didn't). Instead, he threw more breaking and changes that he had trouble locating. He was also biten by some bone-headed defense that would have failed Baseball 101.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.

He looked OK for his 1st start.His defense let him down on Cleveland's 1st run. His curve looks to be wicked if he can get some command of it, which he didn't in his 1st start. His cutter impressed me the most. touched 96 MPH a few times but mostly worked around 93-94. Change needs work. Until he gets better command though he will probably be a 5 or 6 inning pitcher.
