I realize that, certainly.
But I'd suggest that a combination of Bruce, Hamilton, and a Heisey/ Paul platoon would greatly outproduce the Bruce, Stubbs, Ludwick OF of 2012 (or a 2013 OF of the same players).
Getting Stubbs either out of Cincinnati or on the correct side of a platoon split really enhances the team. His numbers last season were an anchor to an otherwise okay lineup.
