Re: 6/26/13 - Reds @ Athletics
With switch hitters Izturis and Robinson, the Reds today have six batters who can hit left handed against the RHP.
The non-use of Heisey against the righty is interesting because it shows Dusty is skeptical of Chris v righties right now. Early in his career Heisey hit righties better than lefties, but not recently.
It could also be that Heisey is sitting the day game after night game given his recent injury. Caution.
But Heisey was the DH last night and presumably could DH today if Dusty really wanted him to.
Instead we have Paul as a DH, not a bad spot for him, and Robinson unusually playing v a RHP.
