Sorry, but that doesn't play.
I don't tout Drew Stubbs as a power hitter. He has raw power... just like Maybin. Both have problems translating it into solid power though in game situations.
Maybin has a fine IsoP, specifically for a centerfielder. My point is though that he has been extremely lucky to have a batting average over .230 to this point, in which case no one would case if he would be slugging .390 because he would still be hitting .230.
