Re: Reds minor leaguers Top 5 (offensive)
where should i begin. first off starting in 2006 up to 2008 minor league seasons stubbs K/BB ratio was 2:1, 2.1:1, and 2.5:1. basically his strikeout rate has been on the rise the past three seasons while his walks have dropped, not at any drastic rate; but they've dropped. in 2006 stubbs averaged 1 HR every 35 AB in '07 1HR every 41.5 AB and in '08 1HR every 92 AB's. so while his homerun rate has significantly dropped his strikeouts have risen and his walks dropped. this isnt anything made up. its facts. you cant rebuke the facts. now i completely agree with you that waring is far worse in that aspect as his K/BB rate was 4/1 in '07 and 6.1/1 in '08. but you could go off on a rather large list of players with a considerably better walk rate in the reds system than stubbs. for instance take a look at chris heisey. not only has his career .982 FP% beat stubbs .981 FP% while both have played in the exact same amount of games, but his stolen base percentage is 78% also beating stubbs rate of 74%. both players are very similar in regards to there minor league stats aside from heisey walking just as much as he K's. basically the only reason i say that stubbs is overvalued is because he truly is. heisey has just as much power. K's less, steals more bases, boasts just as good defense, just wasnt picked in the first round as stubbs was. that is just one of the various reasons stubbs is overvalued. really come on, must i continue?
