Re: Centerfield 2013
I think one of the lessons we can learn from watching Drew Stubbs is that prospects should be kept on the farm for as long as possible. Once they are up and "established" it becomes very tough to send them to AAA on a full time basis and it is very difficult to work on your game at the major league level.
Long way of saying, no matter how high I am on him, I don't count on Billy Hamilton.
I still think they will limp through with Drew Stubbs out there. Of course the problem with platooning Stubbs is you've now turned him into a 1/3 time player. You might as well look for a full time solution.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
