I was hoping to see Heisey out there again. I can't remember the last time Laynce had a big hit.
I hope Hernandez isnt really really hurt.
This is four straight with him out of the lineup, right?
hanigan has been playing in AAA right? should be back soon
yes. Dang, I wanted Heisey out there again.
Cueto vs Kendrick. Should be a win.
Marshall Thundering Herd
not to pile on Nix, but his OPS this year against righties is below .700
Gomes and Heiseys are both higher. Its sample size but its not like Nix has crushed RH pitching the last 3 years.
300 AB .236/.287/.471
Actually Gomes is higher.

Remember, though, Johnny's start against Wells in Chicago looked like the surest win and it was the only game we lost against the Cubs. For a successful series against the Phillies, this is a game that we probably need to win.
if anyone hears/sees the PHI lineup go ahead and post it, I can't find it anywhere at this time
I'm all for sitting Gomes down, but I think Heisey should be playing. He's the guy with the future (no offense to Nix) and he's also played pretty well when given his chances. Laynce is what he is right now. A mop-up guy or a pinch hitter.
Putting all 3 lefties at 3,5,6 doesn't make much sense. Why not flip Stubbs and Nix?
Ramon Hernandez is improved, trainer Paul Lessard said. They are hopeful he can start tomorrow. He is available tonight. - jfay
Good news if it is true. Heard that one before.
No reason to play Hernandez with the All Star break on the horizon fellas. Give the guy a little extra rest and let Corky do his thing behind the plate.
I hope Votto blasts a HR in the 1st and gives Manuel a glance as he rounds the bases.
that report tells me they just want people to stop asking for a few days.
