    A Stubbs related question (or Stubbs cost the Reds the playoffs!!!!!)...

    Well actually not really this is more of a hypothetical (and I don't know if this issue has been hashed out a millions times already around here) but here goes....

    What if the Reds had passed on Stubbs at #8 in last years draft? The could've snagged a guy like Tim Lincecum (he went at #10 to SF) who by all accounts could've pitched out of their bullpen in the bigs last year. What is a better scenario going down the stretch last season.... Kearns+ Lincecum+Bray or Stubbs in the system+Majewski+Bray minus Kearns? It's still pretty likely the Reds could've gotten Bray for Lopez in some form of a trade IMHO.

    So what do you think, am I nuts or did the Reds cost themselves a playoff spot with their first pick in last year's draft?
