Re: CF Defense, is it that important?
Stubbs has graded out as a +4 CFer in the majors. In order for Stubbs to be 2 wins better than Choo, Choo (see what I did there?) would have to be just a little better than a -20 defender..i.e. the worst defensive starting CFer in the majors on any given year.
I estimated he might be a -10 run defensive CFer before spring training. To me that still sounds about right.
