    I think even the Week's homer would have been potentially catchable for Stubbs. Would have got to the wall faster, and been in position for a good jump. Just barely got out.

    That's an unfair of course, but it is ugly watching Heisey patrol such a key position. It's not like he has been a monster hitter out there.

    But as you know, the Reds are (or were when I last checked) dead last in the number one spot, by a mile.

    Average it all in, consider Heisey's stay at second in the order, the marks are pretty low for the tablesetters.

    Agree that Stubbs has hit well in the two hole. He seems to thrive there in front of Votto. Frankly, I don't know why Heisey needed to play CF today, Stubbs looked pretty healthy the last two days.

    Nobody is asking for him to be a regular player at this point, to my knowledge.
    Plenty of people adored Chris last year and couldn't fathom why he wasn't being given more playing time.

    Yes, last year.

    Looked up the stats to back my assertion. Heisey has a .231 BA with a .259 OBP and a .605 OPS in the #2 spot.
    "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."

    Ball is really carrying.

    Both Frazier and Week's went much further than I expected off the bat.

    I think Heisey should be sent to the minor leagues.

    He's always been a low OBP hitter, who compensated with good power. He's changed his hitting approach apparently. The result is a low OBP hitter without much power.

    If the Reds still think Chris has potential to be a semi-regular player in the big leagues, they should send him someplace to get his hitting straightened out.

    Aoki singled, went to second on a errant throw by Homer, and gets singled in by Aramis Ramirez with 2 outs.

    3-0 Milwaukee.

    An Aoiki single, a Bailey throwing error on a pick off atempt and a single by Ramirez has plated another Brewer run. Looking like a long day.

    Lets hope they can crank up a high pitch count for Grienke and get him out of there by the 7th.
