    I think he's a good 4th OF, but that's all the team should count on moving forward.

    There. I said it.
    Paul has eclipsed him at the plate and he can take a walk. I would be willing to part with Chris in the right deal....the major leagues is chalk full of similar outfielders. I'd like an outfielder who can play infield like a Willie Blomquist

    Unfortunately, Willie Baseball cannot really hit. At all.

    I thought we were talking about a Heisey replacement, not an Izturis one. For that matter, I think Cesar might at least eat Bloomquist for breakfast in the field -- though I admit, that's just an impression.

    Heisey went 2-4 in Louisville last night, and seems to be healthy. When he's back, is the consensus that Lutz will be sent down?

    Has to be Lutz. Robinson has been too good to let go. Plus he's someone Dusty will bat 2nd besides the SS.
    I think I'd rather keep the Robinson/Paul platoon. I think it has worked well and hate to mess with that at the moment.

    Yes I think Lutz to be sent down. He needs more development. Everyday play will be good for him.

    If HI C comes out hitting he'll be good trade bait. Maybe a B prospect for him or a RP.
