Exactly. If it is simply is Bourn better than Stubbs, its an easy yes. The question is could the Reds afford it? Would they need to deal off other stuff to fit in this season's budget?
Against RHP, there are a lot of guys better than Stubbs. Even below average guys are better than Stubbs against RHP and platooning Stubbs with one would improve the team overall. The real question is can the Reds acquire somebody without blowing a hole in the team somewhere else and/or would that player be a better option than Heisey.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
