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
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.
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
Btw replacing Janish with anybody at SS doesn't make the defense better.
Heisey should start over Hermida. The only thing going for Hermida right now is that he is due to get a hit.
Stop! Heisey time!
