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.)

  1. The Braves boy band was a nice addition to this article.
