    Well, what can you tell me about Stubbs?

    I know he is a good defender, so that is good.

    I don't know a lot about the in and outs of the baseball draft but why wouldn't any team not pick a pitcher in the 1st round? I don't think I would take a position player unless he was the 2nd coming of Willie Mays. If pitching is that bad it would only make sense to do that.

    Stubbs and Bruce could be the future of the Reds outfield. I don't love the pick but I am willing to give the kid the benefit of the doubt.

    I'm using the MLB.com draft tracker pop up. Seems to be going faster than other sources.

    Everyone is pissing and moaning and it may well be justified but give us some reasoning instead of monosyllabic grunting.

    well - he is a Red now, so it's time to hope the scouting reports are wrong and Stubbs is the stud outfielder we all hope

    Probably the later for most of us.

    Can we get a scouting report on Stubbs? I will withhold judgement until I actually learn about him.

    Not a reach, but there were too many good college pitchers available to pick an outfielder.

    Stubbs could be the next Mike Cameron...or the next B.J. Szymanski.

    Toolsy CFs with speed and a high whiff rate are a dime a dozen.

    Good pitching is hard to find.
