    Stubbs has way too many flaws in his game to be a Top-10 pick, especially considering most scouts were disappointed with his power in college using an aluminum bat.

    I dispise taking college hitters in the first round of the draft, so maybe I'm just personally biased here.

    A college hitter who averaged a K per game for his career and who has all kinds of question marks about his ability to hit with wood is not the best available player when there's college pitchers available who regularly pitch in the mid to upper 90s with success.

    On the bright side, it could be worse. Look at that dog of pick the Cubs made at #13.
    This is how I feel.

    I have nothing against Stubbs, I just had my hopes up of getting a top notch college arm.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Braves must be hurting for money. MLB doesn't even have a scouting report.

    At least the inevitable strikeouts debates won't only include Dunn.

    Braves with the first big reach of the draft. Taking a guy rated 82nd overall with the 22nd pick.

    But he is a high schooler from the southeast. Fits the profile.

    This pick tells me Griffey doesn't have much time left in CF nor Dunn in LF.

    Kriv wants better D, much better D, Buckley took Gabe Gross in Toronto, so that should tell you something. After Miller,Morrow,Lincoln and Hoch were gone, it was academic.

    Fine, except nowhere on the planet was Stubbs rated as the best player on the board when the Reds picked him.

    I would have loved to see a future of Bailey, Wood, Scherzer and Walden (2nd round hopeful).

    Yes, you give the kid a break, but if he's languishing in High A or AA ball hitting .230/15 HRs/45 RBIs there will be plenty of reasons to blame management - the warning signs were there.

    Hopefully they believe he will hit and hopefully they're right.

    Dogers take Avery Morris, RHP, likely a draft and follow at # 26

    Why? Stubbs won't be ML ready until Griffey's close to out the door anyway.
