    Stubbs is the real deal

    Just because we have a few solid outfielders in our system don't count Stubbs out. I'm a Longhorn fan (I attend the University) and Stubbs is absolutely incredible. The stats don't lie, I don't care if people say there is a hole in his swing, he still hits .342 in a very good baseball conference. Imagine what he'll do when he gets that hole fixed. He has also been digitally clocked at running a 4.4 in the 40. Also there's only one or two centerfielders in the bigs right now whose defensive ability I would take over Stubbs. He can cover a football field. Drew needs our support so let's not jump all over him yet. I'm going to say it again, I've seen Stubbs live about 40 times and the guy is flat out amazing.

    I hope he is everything you say he is. I will support the pick and pray that it pays off in the near future

    I agree!

    I'm behind Stubbs! Hopefully him and Bruce will pan out!

    Re: Stubbs is the real deal

    the min you said you were a texas fan made you extremely biased in my view. so i dont know how much to put into your opinion. just human nature to talk up guys from your team.

    i think stubbs will be a good major leaguer, should have been picked, i dont think so, but hes pretty much a lock to make it

    Drew Stubbs=Dale Murphy/Adam Dunn - what is wrong with a CF version of Dunn. Stubbs is a player. He will win Cincy fans over within 2 years.

    Perhaps a biased homer but I like the fact that he has actually seen the guy play. That means more to me than folks who scout players by studying their stats

    Drew Stubbs does not equal Adam Dunn. If Drew Stubbs were anything like Adam Dunn, and with that defense, he would have been the #1 overall pick.

    I think Stubbs has tremendous potential. That is also what I think of Dunn.

    I am a fan of Adam Dunn - from the beginning - I loved the draft pick and promoted him on this and other boards from the day he was drafted.

    Oh rly?

    What was Adam Dunn? I know it wasn't number 1, and I think it was the 2nd round.

    He was a supplemental pick after the 1st round who (I thought) fell because he was going to play football.

    Re: Stubbs is the real deal

    Adam Dunn also had big signing questions and wasnt coming out of college. If Adam Dunn had gone to college, and hit like he did in the minor leagues through the age of 21 (in which he was the minor league player of the year), he surely would have been the #1 overall pick of the draft. Adam Dunn has something Stubbs has shown he doesnt. The ability to walk. Adam Dunn may strikeout a TON, but he also walks a TON. Stubbs on the other hand, well he strikes out a ton, and walks none.

    As a side note, if Drew Stubbs of this year would have entered last years draft, he would have been a late first round pick. This year was just very poor.
