It's Homer Bailey time!

Come on.  I know the draft is coming up, but Lincecum's "call-up" thread got 87 comments.  Hughes's got 52.  The last Homer Bailey call-up thread (now outside the top 10) got.....two.

Both blogs by the Reds' beat writers have said that Bailey will get the start on Saturday with Cleveland in town.  Jerry Narron said that Saturday's starter is "TBA.  That's 'To Be Announced,' not 'To Be Decided.'"

I'm a Reds' fan, so I'm interested to hear what others think.  Personally, I think Homer fits the profile of a guy who will struggle early, like a Matt Cain.  He's known to be pretty reliant on his fastball as an out pitch, and that's not a recipe for early success.  He has a hammer curve, so I think he'll eventually have nice success as he learns how and when to throw it.  The Indians' lineup drilled him in Spring Training.  Will they hit him again, or will Homer ensure that on Saturday, this one will belong to the Reds?
