Re: Drew Stubbs: Uncle
While I know every player is unique in the time they need to develop, 1800 minor league plate appearances is hardly rushing a guy who was a Top 10 pick out of a big time college program.
I'm not sure that rushing Drew Stubbs was the problem. I think the fact that is power never really developed at any level (including the combined 800 ABs he had in A ball as a 22 and 23 year old, and 3 HRs in over 450 plate appearances in AAA as a 24 year old) is a much bigger concern. With that kind of power -or lack thereof- you better be a damn good contact hitter if you are going to stick in a major league lineup, and we all know what kind of contact hitter he has been.
