I think it's fine for Stubbs to leadoff once he proves he's a better on base guy. Dickerson is more proven (or less unproven, depending on how you look at it) at being able to get on-base. Only Votto got on more often of any player with >200 PAs in 2009.
This is all purely academic because I'm pretty sure the stone tablet lineups with Stubbs name carved into the leadoff spot have already been ordered.
