    Frazier pops up to 2nd

"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."

    Stubbs:
    .234/.305/.400 for an OPS of .705, with 13 HRs and 23 SBs. (98 Ks)

    Alvarez:
    .235/.306/.480 for an OPS of .785 with 21 HRs, and 1 SB. (114 Ks)

    Stubbs is better on defense, and is faster, while Alvarez has better power. But both have a little 'K problem'.

    Nice AB by Heisey, fouling off a lot of pitches

    Didn't Heisey hit an inside the park home run earlier this year in Pittsburgh? Awesome! Looks like playing him today worked.

    Edit: Never mind, he hit it in 2010.

    Really, really close at home. Heisey gives you an effort.

    Cairo grounds out to short.

    1-0 Reds after 2.

    Score that run for Dusty Baker.

    Man, want to see that replay again. Think we got a break on the call at the plate. Sure seemed like Barajas blocked the plate perfectly.
    Matta = Really good

    Wow re: Heisey. It is not easy to hit an inside the park home run at GAB.
