Re: Reds focused on Bourn
My problem with Stubbs (which accounts for a lot of his Ks) is that he is almost 100% a guess hitter.
You could even see it last night on his fly ball to the warning track. He was guessing fastball (I believe it was a fastball) and guessed right, but just barely missed it. The same thing happened with his walk off.
Now if he guesses fastball and it's off speed... forget about it. Where as if Votto is sitting fastball and it's off speed he can at least battle, foul it off, etc.
