    Chris Heisey. Wow. Valaika is really coming around also.

  2. GregD

    Valaika returning to form? Hitting .375 in his last 10 games with a modest 6 game hitting streak now.

    What does Travis Wood have to do to get promoted? They need AAA pitchers, bring up Wood and sign the Kip Wells of baseball to AA.

    Greg, That situation was discussed over on Doug’s site and he said that he thinks since this is the first time of him dominating, let him dominate for a while, look for him to move up in August.

    I think Heisey could be the real deal. I liken him to Votto (probably not that good though), but nobody was that high on him (Votto) for quite a while then all the sudden he just starts ripping the cover off the ball and rising quickly.

  5. Bill Lack

    I’m not sure how you can say that about Votto. He only had one mediocre year (’05 in Sarasota) and that was the “take a strike first” year. He was .900plus almost every other year, that’s strokin’.
