What does aluminum or wood have to do with striking out? His OBP doesn't seem to indicate a plate discipline problem to me. I would not be unhappy with a Stubbs pick from what I've read and reviewed in his stats. We do not have a difference making cfer, and neither Bruce or Szymanski are pure CFers.
