Heisey would make sense starting in CF against LHPs if he could lefties. Unfortunately he doesn't do that very well.
Main point is the Reds need an effective LH bat off the bench. Jack Hannahan is many things, a quality PH is not one of them. Find me a LH bat better than Paul for the bench and I'm all for it. I don't think Paul is any kind of lock. I just don't see ANY competition for his job.
