    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    If Hamilton is getting a day off, that is a much better choice than Heisey and Ludwick against Greinke.

    Hopefully.

    Bernadina is 4 for 9 against Greinke.

    And Schumaker has been pretty good against Greinke in the past.

    Heisey has the same ave against him and Skip is at the end of his career. And Heisey is a far better OF'er than Skip. Its clear to me that Price prefers Skip in the OF to Heisey for some reason.

    Skip was also a pretty good player in the past.....right now his .532 OPS is getting WAY too many starts.

    Price's wife thinks Heisey is cute.

    Skip may be the only player who gets more starts the worse he plays...must be nice.

    That is incorrect.

    Bernadina lifetime vs. Greinke: 444/.444/.444/.889

    Heisey: .286/.286/.571/.857

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure it matters who the Reds put out there today if Greinke's slider and changeup are working as they have been. Those two pitches have been kryptonite to the Reds. They're 1.37 weighted runs created below average per 100 sliders (3rd worst in baseball behind the Pirates and Red Sox).

    Skip has started 9 of the last 16 games going 5 for 36, BA .139 with ZERO XBH
    Heisey has started 2 of the last 16 games going 2 for 14, BA .143 with 1HR and 1double.
    Ludwick has started 7 of the last 16 games going 6 for 27, BA .222 with 2HR and 2double.

    Clearly both Heisey and Luddie aren't lighting it up but Skip has been poor both offensively and defensively. At least Heisey gives you good D and Luddie has some pop. Even though all 3 have been not great you still weaken your team by continually starting the worst of the 3.

    Every year we he clamoring for Heisey to start more and every year he disappoints.
