I had a good idea that Heisey was going to be the one messed up by Edmonds trade.

I'm sure people will try and convince me again that I was just hating and overreacting.

Well it won't be me. Not sure why getting Edmonds opened the door for Nix?

I'm not sure Heisey is 100%. It looked like he twisted an ankle crossing the 1st base bag late in the game on Wednesday.

When did it not become a good idea to load the lineup with lefties against Josh Johnson?

Josh Johnson was a Carolina Mudcat in 2005 and was named the Southern League's Pitcher of the Year for 2005. He was 12-4 with an ERA of 3.87.

Maybe it is because Heisey struggles against good pitching. Check out his performance when he faces better pitchers. It isn't good.

Interestingly, over his career, Josh Johnson hasn't exhibited an extreme platoon split; he's simply been good vs. RHH and LHH. It's only this year that he's increased the hurt on RHH more than LHH.

I'm not big on Nix hitting second or Edmonds playing CF. I would be better with them swapping fielding and batting order positions though.

This is just going from memory, but Nix seems to have faired pretty well against the stronger RHP starters in the league this year as well

Laynce Nix can't hit either good or bad pitching over his career. I think I'll trust those thousand at bats or so over your sample size.

I don't know. I haven't broken down his ABs on film but the stats show a lack of success vs top pitching. A quick scan of names showed him at 4-24 vs "name" pitchers with

1 HR vs Wagner. Nix alone vs Oswalt this
year was 4-5.

Going off that I'd say your theory is off. Maybe the team has seen him as completely overmatched vs guys like Johnson. I'll take their opinion on that matter.

Firstly, that sounds like a normal trend for any batter.

Secondly, how many at-bats does he have against good pitching? Like 50?

Hesiey in CF and Edmonds in LF helps the defense significantly (in CF without hurting LF) and probably improves the offense to.

Interesting propositions WRT to Nix and Heisey and the type of pitcher they face.

Let's go to the tape!

NIX:



Split G PA H BA OBP SLG OPS
vs. Power 28 30 5 .185 .267 .407 .674
vs. avg.P/F 22 36 6 .176 .200 .265 .465
vs. Finesse 39 77 26 .371 .421 .586 1.007
3 6 1 .167 .167 .333 .50


HEISEY:



Split G PA BA OBP SLG OPS
vs. Power 23 29 .250 .345 .625 .970
vs. avg.P/F 19 33 .214 .333 .393 .726
vs. Finesse 25 58 .333 .397 .510 .906
5 8 .333 .500 .833 1.333


Where:


Power pitchers are in the top third of the league in strikeouts plus walks. Finesse are in the bottom third of the league in strikeouts plus walks. Stats are based on the three years before and after (when available), and the season for when the split is computed. A split in 1994 would consider years 1991-1997 when classifying a pitcher.

Defense is the flavor of the month. For all the defense talk, Heisey had a boneheaded play vs STL as well. I realize that he has become a fan favorite and I wouldn't be bothered with him starting, but maybe we can face reality and see that there might be a legit reason for him not to start.

So what I'm not even allowed to mention defense in a post?

I mentioned both compnents and suggested that using Nix probably hurts in BOTH areas, and definitley hurts us defenisvely.

It's not like Nix is a good hitter. Generally speaking, the reasoning to get him on the field would be his defense, but I suppose you don't care much about that, so why do you want him playing?

I personally am starting to wonder if you even read and analyze opinions that go against the FO. At this point it looks like you would rather just label us all into "FO hater/Heisey fan favorite" category, rather than actually debate our opinions.

This is the third time in less than a week I've basically been labeled something by you. It's not exactly good for intelligent discussion. I'm not running around and labeling you a FO shill.

It's not that I want him playing, it's the reaction to him playing. Like Heisey is some automatic start. There are legit reasons why he may be sitting.

Well, considering Nix' history, I think the question should be more why are we making room for him in the line-up when we have a young player that has come up and impressed right from day one at the plate, while also being able to play a premium defensive position that is currently filled by a guy who is like 83 years old.

I'm not saying Heisey is a god or something. If we are going to talk small sample sizes, you have to be skeptical of Heisey. At the same time, are we really that concerned that he can't outplay Nix, especially when Heisey benefits the contruction of the team on the field?

You can call me that, it won't bother me. I've been called it before, but not since they became a contender. Kind of stopped around then.

Intelligent discussion is good, but haven't we reached the point where the trust is there? This is the best team we have seen, by far, in years and yet these guys still seem to struggle with who to start? Kind of hard to believe. Enjoy the game and root for the guys on the field. Don't get so caught up in these kinds of decisions. We are acting like Baker and Jocketty decided to bench Votto for Cairo bc of the matchup.

I'd like to see Heisey in there 5 days a week or so, but I think sitting him against Josh Johnson is doing him a favor. Not sure it really matters who is in the line-up tonight. I'd place the line on three Reds hits this evening and I'd bet the under.

Hope like heck I'm wrong.

Whoever the 3rd base coach is for the Marlins should be looking for work tomorrow if not sooner. It was like he told Uggla to stop after about 3 steps past the third base bag.

I suppose it could be Uggla's fault too but man that was terrible enough for both guys to get blamed.
