Again, I'm not arguing that it's the right decision by any means, just saying that it isn't surprising. Dusty has said numerous times that he wants Stubbs to patrol big outfields.
I know he's the punching bag lately for good reason, but our teams recent offensive woes are way bigger than him and even Valdez. We have quite a few guys who are slumping.
He fooled them because every other CF dives for that ball and 1/2 of them catch it.
His best play in 6 weeks was a scooped ball.
