Stubbs had a rough go around in August as far as the K/BB rate goes and it hurt his OBP big time. He made some real strong adjustments in Sept/Aug.

I do think the power is legit enough. I don't think he is a 30 HR guy in a full season, but I do think he is a 15-20 HR guy in a full season. So long as his plate approach is like the Sept/October Drew Stubbs, he is absolutely 100% a guy we should love to have in CF in 2010. Certainly you should always be trying to make improvements and if you can do so, you should. With that said, I don't think we should be out actively trying to grab a center fielder either.
