You know you’ve lost it when even Dusty Baker gives up on you, Fast Freddy.

I am kinda surprised at this.. Not because of how well he has played cause honestly he has pretty much sucked.  Had some good key hits here and there but overall not what I thought we would get out of him. 

Baker seemed to play him all the time.  My guess is with Heisey back he will get most of the time in LF.  Alonso will get time in LF and a rare game off for Votto at 1st

Finally Quintanilla gets sent down. No excuse having a guy with a .050 batting average (no matter how big or small the sample size) on your big league roster.
