There is no long term commitment and it buys time for the future centerfielder of the Reds, Stubbs, to develop and not be rushed.
We have a CF right now
that could possibly be the CF of the future in Chris Dickerson. Give me Dickerson every day over spending money to sign a worse player in every category, except speed, for 2 years.
