Point is all the Heisey love on SD is nonsense as he does not provide any type of meaningful upgrade over Stubbs.

And, if you like, I can cherry pick a stat as well as you.

And, if you like, I can cherry pick a stat as well as you.Cherry picked or not,it is a fact. Heisey is out performing Stubbs, and I can say the same thing about all the Stubbs love being nonsense. Dude has no business starting 6 outta every 7 games, with a sub .225 BA.....but hey, the Reds keep winning despite him.

Heisey and Stubbs have both been terrible this year. Heisey has the better BA, but I'll take Stubbs in every other way. Besides, it's Ludwick who's keeping Heisey out of the lineup. That guy has been an RBI machine at times. He's earned the fulltime LF spot for the time being.

I would only want him at hitters parks because that's about the only place he's effective with a .750 career OPS away from Coors. He's the most overrated player in the show right now. If he played anywhere but Denver as his home park he would be just another player and not inline to be making 20M a year at the end of his deal.

Even if you want to drop pitchers parks we're talking about an .800 OPS max on the road and a hitter in the .270's. No All-Star no 100M career earnings and this debate would never take place because you are fooled by park effects.

I named every NL Park.....SD and SF are atrocious hitters parks where most everyone has worse numbers. His other poor one is at NY....another awful hitters park.

His best numbers are at LA....another poor hitters park....you sitting him there? You can't generalize on the road when I showed you he's MVPish at Colorado, LA, Chicago, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Philly and Arizona. He's very good at St Louis, Houston. He's above .800 OPS at Cincy, Wash, Flordia. Ridiculous to generalize "away" when he's great at 7 of the 15 NL parks, very good at two others, beyond adequate at 3 others. His 3 worst are at 3 of the worst hitters parks.

According to gamecast the Pirates had 1st and 3rd with no outs, then a popup and strikeout so it's still tied and 2 outs.

You know it'll be interesting to see what Dusty does when Votto is back.

If we're facing a lefty I do not think our best lineup includes Bruce. Frazier-Stubbs-Ludwick and Rolen at 3rd. That's assuming Ludwick has taken some fly balls in RF which I would assume he has.
