    I wish Ludwick was playing today, but I can see why Dusty would want to give him some rest. Just wish it was Stubbs sitting and not Ludwick. Although Stubbs has been hot too, so really I'm just nitpicking. As bad as Sanchez is, I'm not sure that it matters who we run out there lol.

    Why not sit Bruce and let Heisey play right?

    For some reason that didn't even cross my mind. I agree with you completely.

    Dusty rule: Have a good game then sit the next day. I think people were joking in yesterday's gamethread that Dusty would sit Ludwick today

    Only half joking.. We all knew there was a decent shot at the prospect of him sitting, otherwise no one would have even made the jab. Anyway, looking forward to Latos. The wife got to chat with him for about 10 minutes on Friday about her cousin who used to room with him for 3 years in the San Diego farm system. Hes a pretty chill dude. Nice guy. Laid back.

    Anyway. Let's gget win number 61 and 10 in a row guys.

    Bingo!

    That said, the fascination with Heisey is so confusing to me.

    I'm not a huge Heisey fan, but it has been 6 days since his last start. He plays fairly well in this role. He's just not an everyday player.
    "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."

    Not as confusing as the board's everlasting fascination with lineup choices when they have the best record in baseball.

    One potential reason for the Heisey start...maybe another team wants to see a little more of him? Tis the season.

    Re: 7/29/12- Reds @ Rockies

    I was just thinking Ludwick was so hot that he needed a day off. No reason to let him go out there and rake in his favorite park in MLB.

    [Sarcasm off]

    This is what drives a lot of people crazy about Dusty. I like Dusty overall, but my one gripe is lineup construction. If he wants to get Heisey a start, that's fine. Put him in CF and give Stubbs the day off. It's really not that complicated. Giving Ludwick a day off while he's this hot is doing a favor for the other team. Especially when Votto is already out of the lineup.

    I know, I know, we've won nine in a row, our record is 60-40, how can there be anything to complain about? I get that. It's just that it seems foolish to give Lud a day off today. And, again, if Heisey needs to play (which I agree with) then put him in CF and put Stubbs on the pine.
