Bailey's average fastball velocity has been 94.1 mph, which is exactly the same as last year. Meanwhile, his GB% (51.1), K% (24.3) and SwStr% (10.8) are all career highs. In other words, there's nothing to worry about here. Go ahead and try to "buy low" if that opportunity presents itself in your league. - Dalton Del Don

Fresh off a $105 million contract extension, Homer Bailey has had a dreadful start to his 2014 campaign. In three starts, Bailey has managed to get through 14.1 innings, while posting an 8.16 ERA. Obviously, this isn’t what Cincinnati or Bailey himself had in mind to begin the season, but is the sky really falling? […]

He's just lucky his name isn't Kicked-In Nuts Bailey. If you turned a paper into your English prof and named the homer-prone pitcher, Homer Bailey, your prof would say it's too expository. But the prof might've been more forgiving if you hadn't named the mayor, Billy Gladhand; the police chief, Officer Corruptski and the fro-yo cashier, Barry Tart. It's almost too ridiculous to be believable what...

Bailey's progression over the last 4 seasons has been so steady and linear that many didn't notice the borderline SP1 numbers he posted in 2013. Unfortunately for his 2014 owners, he's been dreadful in both of his starts this April. Don't let those two starts scare you away though! This is a buying opportunity. Bailey missed time this spring with a groin injury, and both of his starts this season have come against one of the NL's top lineups. - Mike Baum

I bet a lot of people in your league don't realize Bailey had 199 strikeouts last year. He's also improved his ERA and his WHIP for four straight seasons. There's another level to potentially climb. - Scott Pianowski
