I still feel that assuming Stubbs' BAPIP regresses, that his overall game is an upgrade on Heisey. At his best, Stubbs has posted 4 WAR seasons, something that Heisey has not shown in CF.
You might not. Others might not. But at best it's still pretty subjective either way. An argument could be made for either. To what sample we have for both, Heisey's UZR is progressing at a pace in CF that Stubbs' has progressed, though Stubbs' sample is obviously bigger.
To this point though, Heisey has been an overall better hitter through his career in his 700+ PAs.
