Good points, I hadn't considered that. As far as production goes, there's no doubt Bruce has been the better hitter. I'm more talking about hits in key situations.
It's an eyeball test, but the last time I saw numbers they showed that the guy you want at the plate (between the two) if you need that run in would be Stubbs.
It seems with Bruce it's a lot of strikeouts and double plays, and with Stubbs a lotta strikeouts haha. Stubbs will get a big hit for you late in the game though, he seems to have a knack to do so.
