I strongly disagree with your premise. What everyone is forgetting about Drew Stubbs is how MUCH baseball he has played the last couple years.
Drew Stubbs and the Texas Longhorns started playing games that counted in early February. HERE is a link
to their games. They played all the way through the college world series, into the first week of June.
During this 2006 college season, Stubbs played in 62 games, had 243 ABs, hit .342, .439 OBP, .580 SLG, 12 HRs, and stole 26 bases in 32 attempts.
In 2004 and 2005, Stubbs played on Team USA in international competition. They played a 5 week schedule from July through August those years. "A two-time USA Baseball National Team member as well as Academic All-American, Stubbs was an integral part of Texas 2005 national title squad and helped the Americans capture a gold medal during the 2004 FISU Championships."
In 2005 at Texas, Stubbs played 72 games, hit .311, had a .384 OBP, .527 SLG, 11 HRs, and stole 32 bases in 38 attempts.
This year Stubbs has again kept playing ball after the college season. He signed quickly, and went to Billings. He has now played 48 games there, hit .251, .366 OBP, .402 SLG, 5 HRs, and stolen 18 bases in 22 attempts.

about Stubbs selection as a finalist for the 2006 Golden Spikes award for the best amateur player in baseball.
After all of this baseball, I think Stubbs can be forgiven for being a bit worn down. He has always had a problem with striking out too much, and he needs to work on that. However, if he had 9 more hits at Billings than he does, he would be hitting over .300.
Pioneer League baseball is a classic 'small sample size' league. Also Stubbs has missed about 17 games, between his toe injury, and more recently, his concussion from a collision in the outfield. I remain optimisitic. I predict that Drew Stubbs will have a break-out season next year at Dayton.
