Bruce out again. That's not a good sign.

Hopefully Bruce's problem is not an oblique muscle. Apparently he hurt his side during batting practice yesterday.

Bruce out again. That's not a good sign.

It may not be a good sign, but given Dusty's history of holding guys out an extra day or 2 after he thinks they're fully healthy, or at least healthy enough to play, I never thought there was a chance he'd play today w/ tomorrow's off day. If he's not in the lineup friday evening, then I'll be concerned about a long term injury.

Maybe he really is taking after Edmonds.. that's what Edmonds is out with, right?

7 game lead, mediocre lefty on the mound, Cards this weekend, an extra day makes a lot of sense.

I think it was a hamstring tweek or something like that but apparently he's been doing baseball activities for the last few days. Valaika has done well in BP's absence but giving Cairo a start tonight doesn't bother me at all. Get him some ABs and keep him fresh for these upcoming games. :)

I would love to break out the brooms this evening. Go Reds! :D

Just a couple nights ago he had a huge hit in the 10th inning before Bruce got the walkoff (IIRC).


Heisey has come up and done a great job this year as a rookie. He's got 4 pinch-hit homers. Has played great late-game defense. And I've seen him contribute on the basepaths as well.

That's the big difference with this year's team. They've called up guys from the minors who have contributed in their own way. He's not an all-star, but I don't think anyone expected him to be one.

Heisey hasn't shown the ability to hit starting pitching. Freakish splits. .400ish OPS in his first 2 ABs vs starters.

He kills relievers so far this year. Maybe he is the perfect compliment to Gomes, being the late inning PH and then going in as Gomes' defensive replacement.
