I'm guessing, by the draft at the latest, Heisey will be in AAA. Or maybe the idea is to get Heisey some serious push as a prospect so that he may be dealt. If so, dominating AA is also a great gig.

Having both Stubbs and Heisey perform at such high levels means more opportunities to find answers. Hopefully, the Reds don't simply stand pat and watch prospects turn into suspects as they age. Hopefully, Cincinnati picks the right prospect to send away in a trade. Hopefully, Cincinnati picks the right CF for now and the future.

I'd like to see them hang on to Heisey. Stud center fielders don't grow on trees.

Soto now at 287/320/401 with a 721 OPS. Pretty solid after a month of scuffling, but he needs to show that power soon. If that happens, the walks should come. Maybe not a ton of them, but enough so that he's not all-hit anyway.

Yeah his numbers have been really solid. Good bb/k ratio's, good on base skills, respectable slugging, good baserunner and from all accounts he holds his own in the field. It's time for a callup to AAA.

OF Chris Heisey led the offensive charge for the Mudcats, going 3-5 with a three-run homer. Heisey homered off the scoreboard in deep left in the first, then followed with singles in the fourth and fifth. Sean Henry set the table from leadoff spot, reaching base three times. Henry was hit by a pitch in the first, singled in the fourth and walked in the eighth. Biscuits starter Aneury Rodriguez (L, 2-7) continued his struggles, allowing 7 earned runs on six hits and three walks over 3.1 IP. Rodriguez becomes the first Southern League pitcher to lose seven games.

I know this might be crazy, but can heisey play LF? Would he be like at worst, a Shannon Stewart in left? Because I'd sure love to see him and stubbs in the same outfield.

I would say so. If not, I'm sure Stubbs could handle LF.

Don't worry he's in Sarasota where power numbers take a beating. Big parks and the air there lend to lower power numbers.
