There's a difference between a player who's generating chances but getting none of the bounces and a guy who just plain sucks. Bailey, at least this season, is in the latter category.
I agree that Bailey is having a horrid season. But I support going after him because for one, he'd be a great buy-low, and second, because I think that his poor play has been due to a mental block, stemming from a lack of fulfilling expectations and the feelings of failure on his part. I really think he'll turn his career around. He has the hands and the smarts.
