    Heisey is the only guy on the club who goes 0-5 and sits for a couple of days. What is our record in games that he starts?

    Re: more valdez please

    I laughed when I logged on this morning and saw this thread!!! Just a month or so ago EVERYONE was calling for Valdez to be DFA'ed....he has had a few good games now and Maker wants more of him. I've never really had a big problem with Valdez, he can play multiple positions in a pinch. You gotta give Dusty SOME credit for giving him some consistant AB's, when he was needed to replace Stubbs/Heisey he has produced. Plus you gotta give Valdez some credit for stepping up.

    Hi-C didn't seem right last night. Swing seemed a little off, yet he was hustling down the line. He was hitting good when he got hurt. Something isn't right with him.

    I'm not a fan of benching someone when they're hot. Valdez should of been in the lineup. He was hitting well in the 2 spot.

    Valdez has earned some more playing time IMO (with our current roster condition and state of affairs generally)

    "Valdez is horrible, I can't believe he's starting in CF for the Reds."

    "Dusty's a moron for starting Valdez."

    "This guy has three innings playing time at CF ever."

    ONE WEEK LATER: Valdez Rocks! More playing time! I love Wilson so much I'm gonna dye my little goatee blonde and join a boyband.

    Unbelievable....

    Valdez does deserve some playing time due to his recent play but to say he needs to start more that is a

    I have never ripped on Valdez since hes been a Red. I was one of the few who always knew he could produce because he did it with the Phillies and has had a solid overall career

    I wasn't directing my response toward you by any means.

    1 pinch hit appearance and 1 start. Let him get back in the flow. He was off for multiple days. If after a week or two he was still struggling then sure. But before his injury he was our hottest hitter not named Votto or Phillips.
