    And that's a certainty...how? It's not like Ludwick deserves the playing time over Chris.

    ball four to zimmerman was close...

    Wow. That was close. Zimmerman with the walk. Borderline call there.

    Agreed. Give him the job and tell him it's his to lose. If he falls on his face, then that's on him. They're not going to get any worse production than they're getting.

    I was simply responding to the plan that suggested we need to send Heisey down to play Constanzo and Frazier full time.

    And Constanzo needed to hit a ground ball towards the right side of the field in that situation. With runners on 2nd and 3rd, and no outs, his job is to get the runner on 2nd to third.

    1. Costanzo is a better 3B than Frazier.
    2. Frazier is a far better LF than he is a 3B.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Disagree on BOTH counts. Tremendously.

    The Reds tried to ignore defense in the past decade. We all know where that got them.

    Apparently it was so close that Yahoo says Zimmerman K'ed.
    "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."

    I didn't say we should ignore defense. Maybe you'd like a whole team full of Paul Janishes?

    Sam did a nice job with LeMeat of the Nat's lineup.
