Re: The Intangible Effect of Drew Stubbs
Here's the flip side of all of this:
The pitcher on the mound has all kind of pressure on him knowing "I can't give up many runs -- our centerfielder will be good for about 3 Ks at the plate today, likely during key situations. I really need to bear down here and not give up any runs. Can't count on Stubbs producing any runs offensively with his embarrassing OPS."
See how easy that was?
Bottom line: The Drew Stubbs spin-doctoring is hilarious IMO. The guy is a bad MLB player.
