    You're correct, it doesn't but if it bothers you there is an ignore feature.

    I just think it's sort of lame to try to make your posts stand out among the others when we all use the same font consistently. What's the point outside of attention seeking?

    I'm fine with Stubbs starting. He has the ability to carry a team to a win during a game. Let's hope he's ready.

    Ok, enough with the personal stuff.

    Heisey has struggled big time lately as well. Had a chance to make a statement in late Sept and Oct and came up empty. Still a better choice than Stubbs IMO.

    Stubbs has to smoke a pitch sooner or later. Right?
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    If he does, it will be strictly blind squirrel finds acorn.

    Yeah, I guess there's a chance.

    Heisey is a guy that I could actually see coming through in a post-season series or two. Just strikes me that way.

    Baker bashing is just par for the course. It wouldn't make any difference if he started Heisey over Stubbs, this board would find something else to complain about.

    The amazing thing is about criticism in any aspect of life - if the one dishing out the bashing turns out to be wrong - nothing ever happens. If Stubbs goes 3-3 steals two bags and makes a game-saving catch - not one of the bashers will give Baker any credit that he pushed the right button. It will be all be luck.

    I'm not crazy about Stubbs starting, but they did pretty well this year with him playing most of the time and as I have said before - Heisey is a good player, but he's not the end all be all.

    No, if that happens I'll admit to being wrong. And it could happen, anything is possible. Baker just might be drawing all the right cards this season.

    I suspect that it won't happen. And I'd hate to see Stubbs help sink the ship now. Based on his performance this season he simply should not be starting, IMO.

    So far so good.

    A BIG single. And a nice defensive play, though "companion coverage" didn't really cover it.

    When is the last time Stubbs went 3-3, stole 2 bags, and made a game saving catch.

    I will save you the time. It has never happened. Drew Stubbs has NEVER gone 3 for 3 and stolen 2 bases. He went 3 for 3 once, and did steal a base vs. Washington last year. That is the only time it has ever come close to happening.

    Everything Drew Stubbs has done in the past shows that if he does have a great game, IT IS LUCK! How may games do you apologists need to watch in order to realize he has no business starting in MLB? You sit there and talk about 1 game. What about the hundreds of games he sucks? The Reds have won despite him, not because of him. He is 1 of the 2 worst regular centerfielders in the game, and very well could be the worst. This is not debatable. Could he suddenly become a hero? Sure. They could pull me out of the stands and maybe I could hit a home run. It would be luck, and you know that because I suck at baseball. Yet it could happen. Doesn't mean it would be a good move. Same thing with Stubbs. Every single thing we have seen for more than a year says he sucks at baseball, at least on the MLB level. If he succeeds at a crucial point, heck yes it's luck. He has proven over and over again any success he might have is luck. His stats are beyond brutal at this point, and anything he does will go against all common sense and reason. It would be complete luck. So my only hope is to believe in Leprechauns, fairies, and Drew Stubbs 3 for 3 nights with 2 stolen bases. The sad part is none of them exist, yet you and Dusty keep believing in them.

    Wow, 1 for 4, a single, and a play every centerfielder in MLB makes. Hall of Fame, take out a spot for Drew Stubbs. Let's just forget the 3-0 count where he got pitches right down the heart and struck out with a man on first.

    When you are praising a guy for going 1 for 4 with a single and cutting off a ball pretty much every player makes, you know he is bad. He had an ok day and you are praising him. That is how much he sucks. OK is worth praise.

    Hey, if Stubbs goes on to be the superstar of this playoffs, don't kid yourself. It is luck. Could it happen. Sure. Billy Hatcher was a superstar in 1990 (who was much better than Stubbs that year). Even stranger things have happened. Yet it doesn't make it the smart call.
