Re: Drew Stubbs for CF in '10?
On Willie T, I'm going to go the contrarian route and say I think he won't be anywhere near the strating job next season if he isn't cut or traded/given away. Why? I'm trusting Dusty to be the same "old style" guy he usually is. With that in mind I think Willie T crossed a line that Dusty won't forget easily - Baker thinks WT loafed on rehab. To guys like Dusty that's a cardinal sin. He easily forgives lack of talent, even lack of production, if he thinks a guy works his butt off, but let him believe a guy isn't putting it all out there and it's over. My guess is Willie's gone even if it means eating money.
As to the original question, I like Stubbs as the CFer in 2010 with liberal doses of ChrisD. Heisey could step in to a lesser role as Stubbs' backup if the Reds trade Chris - and I see that as a distinct possibility if they find an interested team who'll swap a similar player at a position of need (SS, C, SP). The Reds continue to display an ambivalent attitude toward Dickerson, probably because they've always seen CF as Stubbs'.
