BTW, Ellsbury was the 23rd overall pick in the 2005 draft. The stuff I read about Stubbs said in most years his skill set would have lent to his being a late first round draft pick.
The Stubbs draft (2006) was routinely described as weak -- well before the draft took place. 2005 -- the year Ellsbury went -- looks to have been the strongest in quite a while. You can't compare the two players based on their draft position alone. Similarly, pronouncements about Stubbs being a bust because he was "a top 10 pick" fail to account for the talent pool he was in. All first rounds are far from the same.
