Re: Drew Stubbs: What if?
As has been pointed out many times, I think he just doesn't have any pitch recognition skills at all. He seems to just be guessing up there, almost randomly deciding when and when not to swing. And when he does swing, he's not very good at making contact.
I'd be fine with keeping him as an extra outfielder, but I think Heisey is actually better in that role. I'd like to see the Reds get a CF in the offseason and move on from Stubbs.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
