    Like his impatience. His arm from the outfield.

    What a catch by Bruce.

    What was that about Bruce's defense regressing?
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

    "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 don't see anything in his game that suggests he's not average. His tools are decent all across the board but not exceptional in any one thing. That is basically an average outfielder.

    Stubbs, though he might have better physical tools, has not manifested that talent into production. At this point, I don't see anything to suggest the lightbulb is going to go on for him.

    Even if Stubbs is a slightly better defender, Heisey has been a better hitter. A .756 OPS for a CF is pretty good. That's Heisey's career number to this point.

    Interestingly, Heisey's current career WAR (3.6) would be the same as Stubbs' (8.4) if extrapolated to the same number of plate appearances.

    No. It's just used wrong, a lot.

    Good outing by Bailey. Really, really solid.

    No problem. This thread is now tainted by Sandusky though

    Check your dictionary. I know people don't like it, but the meaning has been amended.

    If this regime believes Stubbs to be a better play than Heisey, I believe them. They have a fairly good track record in these situations.

    I think they believe he COULD be a better player and they keep hoping to see it. Dusty's strength and his weakness. Track record spanning a year and a half now but he still hopes Drew will turn it on and gives him chances to prove it because you can't prove it if you ain't playing!.
