Re: Stubbs vs. Votto
It's likely that a great deal of Stubbs' value will be derived from his defense and the position he plays.
In a lot of ways he looks like the polar opposite of a player like Adam Dunn from a WAR perspective.
I'd predict that those who think AD was very valuable will tend to undervalue Stubbs while those that think AD was overvalued will tend to value Stubbs more highly.
That said, it will be interesting to see if there is a meeting of the minds given a new player will likely stimulate discussion on some older, seemingly hashed over topics.
