    I really don't mind giving Heremdia a chance while he's up here.

    Heisely has gotten plenty of chances year to date, and will likely get more later in the year. So far, Heisley has proven he's a good 4th OF.

    Let's see if Heremdia can justify his roster spot.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Gotta love a SS-2B hitting 4th and 5th... I bet that hasn't happened much.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager

    Re: 4-26-11 Reds @ the Brew Crew

    This is actually a pretty astute lineup for the Reds tonight.

    First off, with Leake throwing ground balls, Dusty rests Cairo and uses Renteria and Janish in the infield. Better defense.

    Second, in very limited innings this year, the Brew Crew pitcher has a 1.17 ERA against righty hitters. He has a 5.68 ERA against lefty hitters.

    So using Hermida tonight makes sense, to give the Reds another lefty bat in the lineup. And to rest Gomes, who sorely needs it.

    Re: 4-26-11 Reds @ the Brew Crew

    How the hell do you determine an ERA vs a handed hitter? So if you give up a double, a single, and a walk to right handed hitters and then give up two sac flys that score two runs to left handed hitters your ERA against left handed hitters is nothing and you're ERA against righty hitters is a lot?

    That's a bad stat.

    Not to mention the fact he's "thrown" just over 7 innings against right handed hitters and 6 against left handed hitters which is nothing.

    There's no reason for Heisey not to be playing. And I find it funny that edabbs is defending it considering you wanted Hermida off the team after 2 ABs lol

    Defending? No. But look at the OPS splits. I see why Hermida is starting.

    Heisey gets too much man-love on RZ for a guy that has a staggering .500+ differential between his OPS as a starter (.657 career in 196 PAs) v. his OPS as a substitute (1.100 in 65 PAs).

    I think part of his allure is his middle name, Notgomes.

    Re: 4-26-11 Reds @ the Brew Crew

    BTW -- Anyone upset with the lineup can drown their sorrows tonight with Caveat Emperor's Official George Grande Drinking Game™:

    RULES:

    This is a group drinking game (Reds baseball is a social affair). If you find yourself playing alone, utilize the drink numbers in [brackets] as your personal drinking responsibilities.

    Before the game, everyone must assign themselves a number 1-9. If playing with disposable cups, write your number on your cup.

    RULE 1 "Hello": Before the game, everyone starts with a full drink. When George Grande greets you with a "Hi, Hello, and Welcome", give everyone in the group a cheers and take 3 drinks. [3]

    RULE 2 "Story Time": Whenever George Grande says "You know his story," everyone must shout out one fact about the player on screen. Anyone who cannot shout out a fact or repeats someone else's fact must take a drink. If someone shouts out an incorrect fact (verified as incorrect by baseball-reference.com or wikipedia.com), he or she must finish their drink. [1]

    RULE 3 "Smiling": If George Grande goes to commercial saying the Reds are "On the smiling side of the scoreboard" everyone must start smiling. The last person to smile must take 1 drink for every run the Reds are ahead by. [1]

    RULE 4 "Gonna Bee": On any deep fly ball, if George Grande begins to say "It's gonna be...." everyone must start drinking and continue to drink until George finishes his call with "Gone!" If anyone actually finishes their drink during this time, they must shout out "Gone!" as soon as their drink is empty. This person can then give drinks out to the group in the same amount as the HR that was just hit (solo HR = 1 drink, 2 run = 2 drinks, etc.). [2]

    RULE 5 "Got It": If any player makes a catch in the outfield and causes George Grande to exclaim "He Got It! He Got It!" everyone must high five someone and have 1 drink for every time George repeated the phrase "Got It." [2 or more]

    If "He Got It! He Got It" comes after a "It's Gonna Be......" as a result of a catch at the wall, everyone must finish their drink. [finish]

    RULE 6 "Double Play: On a double play ball, if George Grande calls it by the numbers (ex. "6-4-3") every person with that number -- which should have been assigned at the start of the game -- must take 2 drinks. If Grande adds a "Yes, siree!" at the end of his call, everyone BUT the numbers listed must take 2 drinks. [2]

    RULE 7 "Birds on the Bats": If George Grande starts talking about the Cardinals, for whatever reason, during a game not involving St. Louis, everyone must take 1 drink. If Grande refers to them as the "Redbirds" instead of their official nickname, take an additional drink. [1-2]

    If George specifically mentions Albert Pujols (#5), player 5 gets to assign 5 drinks to the rest of the group. If Grande refers to him as "Sir Albert" or "Prince Albert," player 5 gets to assign 5 drinks but must also take 5 drinks himself. If your group has less than 5 players, everyone must yell "Hail Albert!" and take 5 drinks. [5]

    RULE 8 "That's Not My Name": During the broadcast, if Grande refers to player by a nickname everyone must shout out another famous Reds nickname. The last person to shout out a nickname must take 2 drinks. If Grande makes a reference to Juan Castro as "Manos del Oros" everyone must shout "Fiesta!" and take 2 drinks. [2]

    RULE 9 "Get 'em on": If, when talking about moving runners or playing small-ball, Grande states "Get 'em on, get 'em over, get 'em in," everyone must take 1 drink (since we're playing for 1 run). If Grande states this as a result of a run actually scoring, everyone must drink 1 for every run the Reds are currently ahead. If the scoring play results in the Reds still losing, everyone must yell at Grande for being an idiot and take 1 drink for every run the Reds are currently behind, plus 2 penalty drinks. [1 or 2]

    RULE 10 "The Creeper": During the telecast, any time George Grande makes a reference to Chris Welsh by any of his nicknames (The Crafty Lefthander, the Creeper, etc.), Player 1 (Welsh was a pitcher, after all) must assign 3 drinks to the group. [3]

    If Grande discusses Welsh's facial hair (or lack thereof), anyone in the group without a beard, goatee or mustache must take 2 drinks. [2]

    If Grande brings up Welsh's only career home run, Player 1 must take 4 drinks. If they actually show footage of Welsh's home run, Player 1 must give out 4 drinks and finish his own drink. [finish / 4]

    RULE 11 "Boot-Scootin' Boogie": If Grande describes anyone as "Boot scootin" down the line, the first person to drink gets to assign 4 drinks to the group for being the fastest. If Grande states someone has "scampered" home, the owner of the house where the game is being watched gets to assign 4 drinks to the group. If you are watching the game at a bar, everyone must take 4 drinks and the last person to finish must order another round. [4]

    RULE 12 "This One Belongs To The Reds": If the Reds win the game, everyone must cheers and thank George for a job well done. Take 2 drinks for making it to the end. If the Reds lose the game, everyone must give the TV the middle finger and finish their drinks to cover the sorrow.

    Enjoy the game.
