The value the Reds received with his pick appeared to be well less than optimal when the pick was made and Stubbs hasn't done anything since to make it look any better. However, "given up" is too strong a phrase. Disappointed and pessimistic would be more accurate as I can't remember the last "if he hits" Reds player to actually work out.
Point taken, but why have a problem with me for having more patience than you do. Do you believe that I must be ignorant because I cannot see he should be doing better coming out of 4 yrs of college and still after a year hasn't advanced beyond low A ball. I'm not blind to the possibility that he may not ever hit well enough to be a starting major league CF. I just choose to remain optimistic that he will, that's who I am an optimist you are obviously a natural pessimist. So I suggest we quit trying to play mother nature and respect the other's born nature.
