Homer Bailey noticed error in pitching mechanics...

Postby pasterofmuppets » Mon Jul 02, 2007 12:11 am

The Associated Press' Joe Kay reports Cincinnati Reds SP Homer Bailey detected an unspecified flaw in his pitching mechanics while watching video of his latest effort Sunday, July 1. Bailey was hit hard for the second consecutive outing. "I knew something was wrong, but I couldn't figure out what it was," said Bailey. "It's a small, mechanical thing."

So... should we wait and see if he can figure things out and right the ship? I was pretty much gonna drop him until I read this. He hasn't been that dominating when he won and has been horrendous this week :~(

I dropped him for Corpas..... until Bailey has a decent outing he is worthless right now.... he has more walks than K's even in his "good" outings

I'd say hold on to him unless you need the room. I'm holding on to him...I'd like to see another start or two before I purge him...actually, I dropped him in my H-2-H league but am keeping him in my roto league because I don't feel any WW pickup would have as much upside as Bailey does. I want to see if him noticing this "error" in his mechanics has any affect before I dump him in all of my leagues.

All this means is that he should be monitored from the FA list. Is anyone really gonna start him again after his latest train wreck based upon him noticing some mysterious mechanical flaw? I dumped him for Corpas this morning. If you've got plenty of extra roster space, then by all means carry him. But like most teams, I can't afford to hold on to a guy who has been dreadful, and who I most definately would not start next time out, while potential closer are out there.
