Errrr, incorrect again. Stubbs used it in the FSL, but it went unnoticed because you are only looking at his numbers and not paying attention to the context. He then went to AA/AAA and slugged .437 that same season. Sure, in 2009 he didn't use it in AAA.
And the largest difference you continue to overlook is not having it means you will never have it. Not using it means you could hit for power one day. Willy Taveras will never hit for power. Drew Stubbs will and has. Pretending its the same is just flat out ridiculous.
