Whether it's Stubbs, Mesoraco, Stewart, Rolen or Dusty Baker, we all should remember we're not as smart as we think we are. "I was wrong" may not taste good coming out, but you're not going to choke on it either.
I have nothing against Drew Stubbs. I want him to succeed.
I was against just handing him the starting job in CF based on a few good weeks at the end of the 2009 season. I thought he and Chris Dickerson should battle for the job during ST or at least platoon for awhile.
There were a few others who agreed with me. I doubt any of us were/are rooting for Stubbs to fail. (And I have never seen him loaf.)
Shoot us for having an opinion.
