    No. Watching him when he replaced Stubbs was hard on me.

    Watching Stubbs is even harder on me.

    Would you rather have the professional approach of Drew Stubbs?

    I'm not crazy about his approach, but not every hitter is the same. Some guys are wired differently. The results are more important than the approach.

    Talk about a swing-at-everything approach...

    You guys are debating Heisey and Stubbs. I won't get into the debate.

    My answer is "neither."

    Heisey on the bench, ok.

    Wild pitch moves Votto to 2nd. Just need a hit now.

    Phillips is almost always 0-2. Constantly.

    It would be terrible except he acquits himself pretty well in those spots.
