    "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."

    Another second consecutive start for Heisey in center. I'm sending Dusty a box of chocolates and a toothpick to show my appreciation.

    The loss of Cozart in this lineup is meaningful. Despite his low batting average and OBP, he is a productive hitter which Valdez is not.

    IMO part of the reason Heisey is in there is to avoid having Stubbs, Valdez, and a pitcher all in the lineup at one time.

    Thankfully Cozart, even with an oblique strain, presumably will be back before too long (well before October baseball is what I mean).

    Would really like to see Gregorious get more playing time if Cozart is out awhile, I think Valdez has shown us all what he is capable of.

    My guess is Cozart will be out awhile. Oblique strains can take awhile and Dusty said next week as a best case scenario. Too bad, but Reds tend to be cautious and I think Zack will miss a few series.

    Gregorius will get some chances, but I'm expecting Valdez to play short most of the time.

    Interesting instinct by Heisey on the RBI single. Guy has been diving all over the outfield but that time he decided the blooper was a hit and didn't.

    Seemed possibly catchable. Presumably one run isn't a huge deal here.

    Maybe with more playing time, Chris has decided to save his body a little and use discretion in deciding whether to dive for the ball. Maybe he likes playing and doesn't want to leave on a stretcher.
