I see where Chris Heisey is injured and may have to spend some time on the DL. I think that now is the time to give Dave Sappelt a shot at the left field position. I also think that he may be the answer for the leadoff position. I think that he has earned a shot. He has hit over .300 at every level of the minor leagues. He had an outstanding spring training, hitting over .300 and he was one of the last cuts coming out of spring training. He at least puts the ball in play. I am very frustrated at watching Drew Stubbs strike out with men in scoring position. He needs to be dropped down to the lower part of the batting order. Yonder Alonso is a defensive liability in left field as demonstrated in the first inning of today's game against the Cubs.
