I'd have an outfield of Luddy (LF), Stubbs (CF), and Heisey (RF) today and let Bruce sit vs. the left-handed starter.
I don't mind giving Cairo the playing time since we know Rolen needs more days off than others. But Rolen is seeing the ball so well right now ... tough to see a lineup that has both Luddy and Rolen sitting today against a left-handed pitcher with an ERA above 8.
Bruce and Stubbs don't sit.....Ludwick sits most every time he has a big game.
This was likely a scheduled start for Heisey.....Luddy is not to the stature of Bruce or Stubbs.
