Homer Bailey

July 25, 2013

When Homer Bailey pitched his second no-hitter earlier this month, he joined a pretty elite list of pitchers. I think this list is under 30 names in all the years we have had Major League baseball. He has a ways to go to catch fellow Texan, Nolan Ryan, however, who is credited with seven of them. Homer came to the big leagues as a thrower, but now is much more of a pitcher. Throwers think no one can hit their pitches because they throw so hard. Pitchers know every Major Leaguer can hit any pitch you throw if it is not in the right place. Just follow Aroldis Chapman on some nights. It is amazing how a matter of a couple inches is the difference between a swinging strike and a base hit. Homer has to be on top of his game even though he throws upward of 97mph. When he slips back to his throwing days, his ERA tops 7.0; but when he is a pitcher, his ERA is below 2.0. This is how finite pitcher has to be even if he has two no-hitters to his credit. Everybody in the big time can throw hard enough; only a select few can throw a pitch where they want to. These make it to the Hall of Fame. Homer is certainly on his way, because he is still a very young man.
