I fully agree that sometimes players suffer exception performances in the FSL. The problem with Stubbs is this isn't an exception. It's what he's been doing since he got drafted.
Ah, so there is no possible way that Stubbs has indeed improved his game overall and gasp, maybe even his power some, but because he never did it before its not likely to happen? Sorry, I don't buy into that. Is Drew Stubbs Ryan Braun? Absolutely not. The fact is though, that is just one example of a guy who seemingly couldn't hit for power in the FSL. He had a .160 isolated power in the FSL, but then exploded for a .286 isolated power number in the Southern League. Stubbs currently has a .140 isolated power number in the FSL.... a mere 20 points from what Ryan Braun had. What if Stubbs gets even half the boost that Braun did by heading to the Southern League? Well then he has a .200 isolated power and is some slugger all of a sudden. You are writing it off that because he hasn't he can't. I am suggesting that Stubbs has indeed improved quite a bit but we aren't seeing it in the stat line because its the FSL.
I am not going to waste my time responding to the rest of your post because everything I need to say I have said above.
