Question: Can Cody Strait play great defense at CF in the major leagues? Because if he can, he needs to be part of the discussion. He's a whole lot closer to being able to put up .750 at that level than Drew Stubbs at this point.
If Stubbs had been taken in the second or third round, NOBODY would be talking about him. He's done nothing to warrant this attention except bask in the glow of his first-round status.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
So basically Lincecum is performing better than the whole top 10, but I don't think the other teams are bemoaning this pick like Cincy should be.
Depends on the meaning of bust.
Edabbs why would you shut down a player, if the injury wouldn't cause any futher damage, long term? Also I see no way an injured player (Lincoln) can be doing better than another player, who is playing (Stubbs).
