Stubbs began as a five tool prospect. Then he was Mike Cameron (solid bat, great defense). Now some folks say he is a defensive backup.
All I'm looking for is one period -- say ten days -- in which Stubbs hits. I'm glad he walks 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.
Well then you haven't been paying attention. In 11 games this month Stubbs is hitting .293/.509/.488 for an OPS of .997. He also has 14 walks to 12 strikeouts. Im sure he had a nice stretch in May as well where he posted an .850 OPS for the month.
