Seems odd to me that everyone keeps lauding Stubbs' defense. If he's hurt so bad, how can he field so well? Seems like his injuries only affect his bat. Was he hurt last season? He didn't hit much at Billings either.
Stubbs began as a five tool prospect. Then he was Mike Cameron (solid bat, great defense). Now some folks predict he may only be a backup centerfielder.
All I'm looking for is one period -- say ten days -- in which Stubbs hits. I'm glad he walks a lot and I'm sorry he's had a foot injury, but one hot streak at the plate would be nice from the 8th pick in last year's draft.
