Homer Bailey leaves the game with a scary-looking injury

Jul 10, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

We have no details at all. All we know is that Homer Bailey just left the Reds-Cubs game rather abruptly. And with an injury to a body part which was not immediately clear, which makes it kind of scary. The real-time descriptions:

 

We’ll hear soon enough. But Bailey being out is not something the Reds, who have been surging of late and are now in spitting distance of the Brewers, need at all.

    Cincinnati Flies, you know, because they’re…dropping…you know. Anyway. This is not good for the Reds, but hopefully for them it’s mitigated by the All-Star break.

    The number of Reds who have been or are injured so far this season is really mindboggling. Between all the injuries and a bench that’s as shallow as a Fall Out Boy album, I can’t believe they’re only 3 1/2 games out.

      Yeah, that Schumaker injury was a real killer to their chances.

        I’m not even a good wiseass since I spelled Schumacher wrong.

        Maybe you meant the Formula 1 driver? Did he have a wreck in Cincy?

      Not a Fall Out Boy fan huh Marty?

      To that…
      Light em’ up…up…up. Light em’ up…up…up. Light em’ up…up…up. I’m on fire!

    On reading the title, I assumed he got hit in the face with a line drive or his arm snapped mid-delivery.

    • bfunk1978 - Jul 10, 2014 at 2:21 PM

      Does seem a bit over the top.

      “Blogger Craig Calcaterra leaves the computer with a scary-looking injury.”

      Photo shows Craig with a horrible case of writer’s cramp.

        Update – Abdominal cramping. Normal for this time of month.

    This was during Starlin Castro’s at bat…the 1st pitch, he landed fine; 2nd pitch, he shuffled his feet a little after his follow through; the 3rd pitch, he hopped on his left leg after the delivery and flexed his right leg. It was on the fourth “pitch” that he didn’t complete the follow through, dropped the ball, hopped again on his left leg and again flexed his right leg.

      Did Castro swing?

    • SocraticGadfly - Jul 10, 2014 at 2:52 PM

      Sounds like lower back then, and affecting sciatic nerve to cause leg pain or seize-up or something.

    @Reds tweeted patellar tendon issue.

    • SocraticGadfly - Jul 10, 2014 at 3:13 PM

      Not sure whether that’s better or worse than a back issue.

      • chc4 - Jul 10, 2014 at 4:07 PM

        Knee is always better than a back problem. But if he popped his patellar tendon it’s bye-bye til 2015.

      • SocraticGadfly - Jul 10, 2014 at 4:21 PM

        Yeah, if it’s a full tear or something, not good.

    Not scary, just odd.

    The Only thing scary is that contract.
