Heisey, as a fourth OF/ PH/ PR, is a valuable commodity. I would be willing to add him if it's the difference between Choo and no-Choo, but I'd want a lottery ticket prospect for him. Chen Chun (the AA C) would be my target.
We have a different view on Heisey. The Reds need to change the hitting approach of much of its lineup. Heisey is a swing and miss hitter, low OBP, the type of right hand hitter that IMO gives the ballclub offensive issues. Terrible K/BB rate.
Walt says that teams are often asking for Heisey. I would accomodate one of them with a trade.
In case the Indians brass is reading, Heisey has some fine attributes as well. Good fielder, hustles every minute, very good power. Reds just need a different type IMO.
