 About 10 minutes before tonight’s game, got word that Gomes was scratched and Heisey was in LF. Now we know why.

Reds press release:

Jonny, you will be missed I hope you do better than ever in D.C. If a good avg. is what Walt is looking at then he should have looked at Stubbs. If half the reds would play as hard as you did Jonny we would be 20 games over, but it is hard to win games when D.A.D. (dumb a** dusty) is making dumb calls.Good luck Jonny and I will be the first to wear a D.C. Jonny Gomes T-Shirt to a Reds Home.As a reds fan let me thank you Jonny for all you did for us. In Dusty we DO NOT trusty.
