When the riddle of how the Reds won the NL Central this year is puzzled out after the season, a lot of time will be spent, I think, on just how good Drew Stubbs has been.
It's more than i thought he was capable of at the beginning of the season. I came around on his power in June.
This isn't a back-handed compliment, but I think his overall numbers are better than his season, similar to Gomes, but not as bad as Gomes. He's still streaky. He had 3 fantastic months, and one of those was a Votto-like month, September. He also had 3 very bad months. Since the ASB, he's got an .847 OPS. I actually think he can be an .830+ OPS guy over the course of a season, possibly as soon as next year.
And that would make him the best CF in baseball.
god that burns to type, but in a good way. I've never enjoyed being wrong more.
