He's playing with turf toe guys come on...geez.
Well, sure and staying healthy is a skill.
I just haven't seen anything on the field that makes this guy stand out. If you asked me to pick out who the reds big draft pick was after watching these guys on the field, Stubbs wouldn't be very high on my list. That's not what I want out of my top draft pick.
Fwiw, I was VERY impressed with the athleticism of WMP at Dayton. He showed arm and speed and mismanaged routes at Dayton. If I had to choose between the two, WMP was better in center. Stubbs will make fewer mistakes, but he doesn't flash anything like the range or arm the Pena showed. Now, of course Pena never got the chance to correct his mistakes in the minors. I just don't see the same kind of potential in Stubbs.
Look, I hope I'm wrong. I hope the guy turns into and improved version of Eric Davis, but based on what I see on the field, I just don't see that happening.
