    So with Stubbs up for what looks like the rest of the season... (a 15 day DL for WT would bring him back in Sept) Does that mean they shift Heisley to CF and bring Frazier up to man LF for the rest of Louisvilles season and Playoffs?

    Heisey is obviously going to be getting a lot more time in CF but who really knows with Frazier. They seem to be really wanting him to play 2nd right now.

    Do you folks think Stubbs is the right choice to call up now or do you think it should be Heisey?

    Nobody knows but everyone will voice their opinion. Only time will tell.
    Heisey has seemed to cool down and is not setting the world on fire like a month ago plus Stubbs wins in the glove department.

    I am just happy to see one of the guys get a shot to hopefully answer some questions.

    I'm not sure what I would do, but if the "speed and defense" mantra is still in effect for the franchise after so many losses, Stubbs should always be the guy. OTOH, if they had changed that slogan recently to "power and production", Heisey would probably be the guy.

    I don't think that is a fair statement. Reds fans hear speed and think back to the dreck we saw for the last two years. Stubbs should get a fair shot because he is his own player, not some washed up under producing has been.

    To add to this further...

    When you are added to the 40-man roster (or "reserved" by the club), you are technically using an option that season. So you must technically "assign" the player on optional assignment to put him in AAA (or AA or whatever). Thereby, when you call someone up, you are technically "recalling" him by assignment.
