Heisey is a 4th type OF. IMO he is a pure guess hitter, hacking early in the count and sits fastball in most of his at bats. He takes more pitches right down broadway for strike three more than I have ever seen. His defense often times leaves you wanting more. He is an adequate defensive CF and a better corner OF based upon his above average speed.
IMO if Stubbs gets out of his massive slump he is a better option going forward in CF. I am all for playing the hot bat, but lets not assume Heisey is the second coming.
