Re: 8/5/2011 Reds at Cubbies Matinee
Stubbs is an above average lead off hitter.
His OBA of .331 is slightly above average but I'd prefer it to be at least .350.
Still, he had unwordly speed and base running ability, and is our best candidate for batting leadoff.
Plus, he works the pitchers in terms of pitch count, and his K's are largely rendered meaningless leading off.
FWIW, he ranks 2nd in the NL in runs scored this year.
