Heisey has not performed well as a starter but has off the bench. I really wonder if he has played himself into the bench assassin role, PH and double switch hero.

That's what I said, so I went out and got him a leash you know, one of those clothesline runners for the backyard. He's got plenty of room out there to dig. The kid's really blossomed. Now I can take him to ball games, movies-you know, happy stuff.

he did....because he was trying to pull it, and could get the bat out fast enough.

When he can learn to sit back and use let the bat do the work on those outside pitches.....it's going to be a very, very bad thing for the rest of the league. Edmonds needs to keep with him.
