Chris Heisey



REDS; The Forgotten factor...

Why do we all forget about Chris?

     We remember Miguel coming in and playing first, second, short, and third, and some how we forget about the clutchest hitter since Kobe made a 3 with no seconds left on the clock.

    As Reds fans... we want a lead off hitter.   We want a guy that can bunt for a leadoff hit.   We want a guy that can come through and just get a MF'n hit.  We think it's gonna be Drew.  I take nothing away from Drew Stubbs.  Kid is about to have one of the greatest seasons no one ever talks about .  So is Jay Bruce.  Joey is gonna do that again. 

      All off season long, while we bitched about Johnny Gomes until a day ago, no one ever brought up Chris.  Chris was the Miguel Cairo of the outfield.  Miguel came in for Frist, Second, Short, and Third and no one ever knew our starters were out.  Thank you Miguel.  Thank you time and time again.   Chris, no one thanked you for feelng in for Bruce.  For feeling in for Stubbs.  For feeling in for Gomes.  For getting infield singles.  For bunting your way to first.  For hitting homer after homer as a pinch hitter.  So, your spring has been slow.  Stubbs looks better down the line and BP is proven so.  And Chris Heisey is just sitting on the team doing what he does and nobody is even talking about you as a leadoff dude.

     So Chris, just keep bunting your way onto first.  Keep stealing second.  Keep pinch hitting home runs.  Infield singles...faster than any man, other than Drew Stubbs, and thats forgiveable, dude is quick, but Chris, as much as I love Johnny, LF is yours.
