Re: BA updated mock top 15
I'm in the minority in that I see the value of Stubbs. Apparently, he is a lock to be a plus defender in CF -- and since he's from a big-time college program he could probably step into GAB very soon and provide that defensive upgrade. Then you get the nice offensive tools all around (power and speed).
Interesting that Detroit seems to be the other top 10 club looking at Stubbs (unless the late rumors re: KC are true). Last year it was the same thing -- I really think the Reds wanted Maybin as their future CF, and had to settle for Bruce after the Tigers took their guy.
That said, I wouldn't mind if the Reds took Drabek -- he seems like a profound talent, unlike Kershaw. I could live with any of the college pitchers, but am the most curious about Lincecum, since his fastball/curve stuff is considered so good.
