Right now Chris Dickerson is our best proven CF, and our best option to bat leadoff.
I think you're kidding yourself about Dickerson. For the 25 man roster, sure. As an everyday player, won't happen.
Chris' basic problem has been an inability to stay on the field. And while he's a good CF, Stubbs IMO has a special ability out there and may be even better.
I see CF as a shared position for next year. But I think Stubbs will get the most playing time. I doubt the Reds will count on Dickerson being healthy for a full season and will play him as a backup/part timer.
As for the Heisey talk, he'll be back at AAA next year, or traded. He isn't in the equation right now. Maybe sometime during 2010 he becomes a factor, probably as a fourth outfielder.
