That's Heisey's value.

Frazier is hitting a menacing .179 with a double and two RBI for Louisville.

Aside from that, Dusty isn't in charge of the roster.

It's becoming painfully clear that neither are solid every-day options in the outfield.

Nor is Ludwick for that matter. It would be nice to have a decent every day LF for once.

Edwin F'n Jackson just retired 10 Reds in a row. Reds suck. I can't even see Mickey trying to spin this.

Nationals are just beating the reds with a stick in this series.

Edwin Jackson with 66 pitches through 7 innings. Utterly embarrassing.

Stubbs can't even hit balls right down the middle. He doesn't even foul balls off. He's not even close.

Reds offense is just not good enough. Getting Phillips back will help but LF and CF are just black holes and this is about as healthy Rolen is ever going to be. Cozart is even hitting solid right now but he and Mes are rookies they'll go through their ups and downs all year. Don't know why Stubbs is penciled in as an everyday starter when he's only gotten worse the last couple of years. Give Heisey his chance everyday for a month to see what he can do, it can't be any worse then Stubbs. Everyone thought the starting pitching would be the problem and while they haven't been going very long they've been pretty solid so far. Who on this team is a proven hitter other then Votto and Phillips plus the inconsistent month to month Bruce?

Right now, yes they do. Luckily for them their potential is higher than Faith-1's.

We're looking at a 4-game sweep. Reds go 1-2-3 in 7 out of the 9 innings. Unreal.

Seven innings today where the Reds went 1-2-3. That's bad

By comparing a MLB season to an NFL season the Reds essentially would be wrapping up WEEK 1 tomorrow. Some of you need to step away from the ledge.

Getting our All-Star second baseman/leadoff hitter back tomorrow should help.

That's true. The 2011 World Champs were in about this same position after nine games last year.

Didn't the Reds have an awesome April last year and a terrible one in '10? As the Cardinals showed last year, its all about getting hot at the right time.

The Reds had an awesome first five games last year, but finished April 14-13. They finished April 2010 12-11.

So, yes, the 2011 Cards and 2010 Reds showed a team can get hot at the right time.
