Espnessence

My 2009 MLB preview.

Homer Bailey may spend most of the season in Cincinnati’s rotation. He may work out of the bullpen. What’s certain is that at age 22, he’ll be a big part of the Reds’ pitching staff for years to come. So it’s too bad for Cincinnati that his name is “Homer.” I can think of only a handful of names that might be worse for a pitcher.

Balk Bailey
Bases-On-Balls Bailey
Broken-Arm Bailey
Bust Bailey
Candy-Arm Bailey
DL Bailey
Grand Slam Bailey
Meatballs Bailey
Rotator Cuff Bailey
Wild Bailey
Hideki Irabu

(Note: Although all of these are bad names for pitchers, many of them are good hobo names.)
