Aside from the roster protection factor, I want to protect the value of Stubbs by not bringing him up. He's just had a pretty successful run in AA and AAA after leaving the FSL. That could really add to his value if the Reds decided to add him as part of a trade this offseason. If he comes up here and hits below the Patterson Line for the rest of the month, some of that value dissipates.
