In either case, Stubbs has never been a .275 hitter and I don't see him ever hitting for average as things stand today. As is, I would guess .240-.250 range with 22 HRs and 40 SBs per season is what I'm expecting.
The only reason I am qualifying my pick is that there may come a time where the Reds rework his entire swing/approach to improve the OBP and presumably decrease his power.
I'm saying .250 10-20 Hrs as a ceiling is downright idiotic even as a choice when last year his only full season was .255 22 HRs, even if he never beats his rookie year and you want to round down. He's already out performed that choice, so basically any 10-20 HR performance should be left off the list. And yes when talking ceilings .275 is the ceiling for a .255 hitter, not .250.
