Edwin Jackson vs. Homer Bailey

Coverage:
TV: NONE; RADIO: None; WEB: Gameday

Partly cloudy. Game time temperature around 70.


   Your Cincinnati Reds take on the Chicago White Sox this afternoon in what looks to be a Titantic Struggle. Homer Bailey will take the mound against Edwin Jackson with Daniel Ray Herrera, Jared Burton, Carlos Fisher, Jose Arredondo and Daryl Thompson scheduled to follow Bailey for the Reds. Burton and Fisher will go two innings each. No one seems to know who's pitching after Edwin Jackson, so there's that.

   Dusty this morning on Homer Bailey, per the Fya - "He’s got a chance to be an ace I think." And here I thought he was our future set up man ahead of Chappie. Also, Homer is still only 24 years old even if it seems like Danny Jackson took him under his wing.

   Unfortunately for his RR fanboys, Adam Dunn won't be starting for the Sox today. To get your fix, check out this Chicago Tribune story on Dunner where he mentions still mentoring Jay Hova from time to time. Take that Jim Edmonds!

   Even more unfortunate, the Reds seem to be running out a half-assed lineup behind Homer. In classic Dusty fashion, Fred Lewis will start in LF the day after Baker announced there was no plan for a platoon and hot-hitting Dave Sappelt finds himself on the bench. Good luck boys, looks like you're gonna need it.

Today's fun fact: Ramon Hernandez passed the U.S. Citizenship test, which I'd bet 36% of Red Reporters would fail. So to Ramon I would like to say, "Bienvenidos a América, donde el sexo con una lata de pelotas de tenis está perfectamente bien y animado."

Today's second fun fact: Both Charlie Sheen and Chuck Norris' legal first name is Carlos. Please don't challenge Mr. Quentin Homer, god knows what will happen to you.
