It is. I think if you had told anyone at the beginning of the year that Stubbs would OPS Between .700 to .725 for the year a vast majority would have taken it. I did a little research to see how his 1st full year year compared to similar players.
- 2009 .307/.407/.714
(16 HR/52 RBI) put up the most similar numbers in similar ball parks...
- 2010 .352/.501/.853 (19 HR/54 RBI)
(6 HR/46 RBI)
(18 HR/76 RBI)
(7 HR/45 RBI)
(32 HR/68 RBI)
(9 HR/57 RBI)
(9 HR/47 RBI)
(1 HR/28 RBI)
(7 HR/39 RBI)
(9 HR/35 RBI)
(15 HR/59 RBI)
So there is obviously a large chance that he will show improvement in 2011 and 2012.
