I guess I should have said, "what I
had hoped he could be." I always thought Stubbs could change his approach and get on base a lot more but sacrifice a lot of power. Anyway, I agree...Eaton won't be hitting 20 HRs a year, but I would love to have him roaming center field and hitting leadoff. Of course, then what would we do with Billy Hamilton next year??
I'm just glad our discussions are turning toward what to do with our extra talent. A good problem to have.
