This makes no sense. The Reds get an F for developing a player for over 3 years that is now producing at the Major League level?
So those 3 years they did terrible with Stubbs, but somehow, miraculously, the Major League staff was able to correct 3 years of poor instruction in roughly 5 months of hands-on work?
The fact that Stubbs is now starting to reach some of his offensive potential, to me, is evidence maybe all those years of development wasn't so poor after all.
