Makes sense to me.
The Reds won the division with Stubbs in CF last year.
If they can replace Rolen and Ludwick's contributions, the lineup is good enough to make the playoffs with Stubbs.
If Hamilton comes up in June/July and siezes the job then Stubbs is not playing in the postseason.
It makes more sense than trading prospects to rent a CF for a season or less while Billy gets ready. (e.g overpaying for Span).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
