    Holy ****ing **** how do they keep running Bailey out there with an ERA north of 8? I mean I know they don't care about this season and they're probably trying to lose as much as possible but still....eight?! There's gotta be someone at AA/AAA worth taking a looking at. Literally anybody.

    Eight?!

    Really wouldn't be surprised if we swept them. We always seem to play them better in Cincy.

    It's only been 50 innings

    If we K in the double digits against this guy again though that will be embarrassing

    In his other 10 starts he didn't even K more than 5 in any of them

    In which he's allowed 50 earned runs. That's a lot. Like a borderline unconscionable amount.

    Find me another guy who's given up 50 runs in ~50 innings and kept his job.

    He's making a lot of money so I'm not surprised he's given a longer leash

    Wow.

    See the thing is most of those guys are still young and it's justifiable to let them work through their **** figuring out.

    Then you've got Bailey and Arroyo. Good job Reds.
