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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Actually, on the contrary. Sanchez has often been one of the best guys to run against because he is very slow to the plate. He's consistently been one of the easiest guys to steal a base against the past several years.

I know I'm a broken record with this, but I am so tired of Jeff Brantley toying with my emotions with his inflections that initially make a play seem like it's a hit. I'm not even sure what he needs to do differently, but it happens far too often, only to have him finish his call indicating that an out has been recorded.

Reds have faced a lot of lefty pitching on this trip. Not sure the situation has changed. He's always been an asset against lefties. He still needs a partner in Cf who can hit against RHP.

I remember that thread. Posters talked up he is LH and his peripherals numbers were good. Sometimes peripherals just tease you.

If Brandon goes down now for any length of time.....then I would have a serious concern thinking this team can continue to play this well. Or close to it.

I know how this is going to sound.... Yeah right...Now you say this.

But I thought his line swing was very good and he could drive the ball to all fields and In a big park like SF...with all that space...I thought he could do very well hitting in that park. He also has been a good defensive player. The Giants did not need the pitching. The Royals did. Too bad it did not work out for both. I like the Royals.

I never saw him play for the Royals or much of his year with the Braves either. I was mostly going by seeing him play as a semi-regular outfielder with the Yankees when I lived in NJ. Kinda reminded me of Heisey as a guy who played best in a limited-type role, and I thought he got hyped up mostly because of the Yankee hype machine. Guess I underestimated him because he is, in fact, a hitting machine.

I think it's fair to say Drew has faced a lot of inferior pitching lately. Also think it's fair to say that some of the damage has been v lefties.

But his two big ninth inning hits were against Cordero, a righty, who (I realize) hasn't done much this year and now is injured. But a righty nevertheless.

Given that Ludwick apparently is a little "banged up" and given that Stubbs is better against LHP, I wouldn't mind seeing the Reds acquire a LHH who can play both positions and spell both Ludwick and Stubbs.

Will be interesting to see the Reds' plans for Drew.
