He may not, and his ceiling is not so high that if he reached it the Reds would regret trading him, as long as they got a good return for him.
I think Chris Dickerson can play league average CF in 2010, if healthy, and I think with the numbers Stubbs put up, he could be the centerpiece of a deal that gets the Reds a real 4-5 win player, being it a SP, SS or LF, which is something that the Reds could really use.
Just for one example, Stubbs, Gomes, Francisco and Wood for Matt Kemp.
Why would the Dodgers want Gomes or Stubbs if they're essentially only getting Wood for Matt Kemp?
Kemp's way better than Stubbs will ever be, Gomes would be a spare part for them, Francisco would be a project with them, and Wood could still end up being a question mark as a pitching prospect.
Just makes no sense for the Dodgers to do it, however Matt Kemp is a target we should absolutely pursue, and if it costs us to include Stubbs then that's easily a price we have to pay.
