Re: 9/8/12 - Astros @ Reds (can't get enough of that Wilson V)
The loss of Cozart in this lineup is meaningful. Despite his low batting average and OBP, he is a productive hitter which Valdez is not.
IMO part of the reason Heisey is in there is to avoid having Stubbs, Valdez, and a pitcher all in the lineup at one time.
Thankfully Cozart, even with an oblique strain, presumably will be back before too long (well before October baseball is what I mean).
