Re: Is Heisey now the incumbent?
Stubbs is the better and smarter CF... I can agree with him being "passive" in CF, but I'd rather have that than turn bloops into extra base hits like Heisey did this week. Diving for the balls isn't the issue, diving for them in those situations and when you don't have a chance (a la Ryan Freel) isn't very smart. Stubbs arm is better and gets the ball to the correct cut off man with a good throw nearly 100% of the time. Play Heisey till his bat cools off, but they need Stubbs D in CF especially in bigger parks.
I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
