Simon was a pleasant surprise last year.
Heisey (IMO) will be an even more important team member this year. A late inning defensive replacement in center field. Plus, I am guessing he may get some starts in center playing in American League ballparks with Choo or Bruce at DH.

Yeah, I agree about Heisey subbing in at CF in the late innings. He will play alot of substitute fielding this year. And he will be the primary man in interleague games with the DH.
