I've said it 6,209 times......Heisey is not the key to a World Series championship.....but how does Drew Stubbs get every start with what he's done in his career? Bruce goes into horrible slumps but neither ever sits. Heisey can go 3/5 and be out the next game due to his swing not matching up to the pitcher....but Stubbs can whiff 208 times in a season.
Stubbs plays every game....starts and never comes out.....Heisey has had more than 12 starts in a month 2 times in his career...never more than 14. Stubbs has started 25+ every month regardless of struggles or matchup. He's fast and that means more than anything to Dusty......but he's not allowed to steal when Votto is up.
For a final time....Heisey is not the difference maker.....but he's also NEVER been given the majority of starts even over 25 games? To me that's just ridiculous to never with a guy who was the top player in their minor leagues when he was brought up.
