I'm worried about Stubbs hitting .240 in A ball. Dunn hit .304 throughout his minor league career.
I could be wrong, but when patience is already your calling card and you have trouble making regular contact, it seems unlikely you're going to suddenly develop better hand/eye coordination. When Stubbs has to face guys who can locate those pitches with movement, then what?
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
