He couldn't be a first round pick even if he wanted. He was not born in the country. And the Reds have aggressively promoted him throughout his career. And yes, the guy is a natural hitter. But he is also 22 years old. You know where Stubbs was when he was 22? In Dayton.
Who are these 22 year olds in AAA that get buried?
