    That's a nicely pitched game. Bailey, then Chapman. 13 games over .500 now.

    Since Chappy started throwing his breaking pitches more, and not go all out every pitch, he can pitch in relief more often. He looked pretty effortless out there.

    "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."

    Right. But it's still a bizarre platoon.

    If we play them later this year and they pound the bejeezus out of us...we're getting the torches and pitchforks and coming to your house for a firm talkin' to.

    It's not a platoon. Heisey came in for defensive purposes.

    Ok, let me be more specific.

    Heisey and Luwick share LF. I believe it is a bizarre arrangement. Both are right handed hitters. They seem to use Heisey against lefties, even though he has hit lefties generally poorly during his career. Some nights it is completely unclear why one player plays and the other sits.

    It is not lefty/righty, which is the classic platoon.

    And in this case, tonight, yes, Heisey came in for defensive purposes because he is excellent defensively in LF. Ludwick is not as good defensively. And it was late in a close game.

    Overall, however, I think it is a very unusual and odd arrangement. Therefore, I referred to it as a strange platoon, or whatever.

    I don't think there's much difference defensively between Ludwick and Heisey in LF. Sure, Heisey is the better defensive OF overall, but that's because he can play CF. Ludwick is very fundamentally sound in LF.

    The double switch was made last night to move the pitcher's spot in the batting order back. Any improvement defensively in LF, however slight, was incidental. Remember, Ludwick came in for Heisey as part of a double switch in Thursday's game.
