So are Stubbs and Heisey being auditioned in September to see who gets penciled into the postseason lineup?

It's a sign of how far Stubbs has fallen in my eyes that I'm not sure I like him in the two hole better than Valdez!

I think Dusty's just trying to get a lineup that'll score some runs. Would be nice to get 2 or 3 guys hot at the same time. Can't believe Votto doesn't have an RBI since he came back

Seems to me in Florida Votto was swinging the bat with more strength, so I think it's only a matter of time now.

There is no audition. Stubbs is clearly the better player and will be our starting CF every game of the playoffs.

Seriously.....why would you think otherwise? Seriously.

After that catch he made to win the game on Sunday, I'm feel a little generous towards Stubby

I'm sure that will change once he goes 0-4 tonight.

09-18-2012, 07:21 PM
Was three feet from curved wall he was just short of and at least 1 step from the CF wall. He slowed up the last 1/3 of the catch.....did not touch either wall.

The stadium idiocy won the game....Stubbs was the CF involved.

Okay. I know this is gonna sound stupid. But I wonder why they can't come up with some sort of instrument that limits the umpires vision to just the strike zone. If the ball comes home and you see it. It's a strike. If you don't see it. It's a ball. Robo-ump.

LMFAO..did you see the throw? Good to see you show up tonight Who Dey....it will be more "fun" with you around. ;)

The throw was up the 3B line a little but that is completely irrelevant. No out. Guy on a shaky knee and it was not a deep fly ball. I guess you're willing to risk your best hitter in that scenario. Sounds about right.

Why is it irrelevant? Do you think perfect strikes are thrown to home on assists 99% of the time? Its called playing the odds.

IMO it is unnecessarily risking an injured guy when you still had a chance to bring him home later in the inning. Which, by the way, they did.
