    Ah, gout: the royal disease. Should we call you the Earl of Boyd? Count Boyd? Duke of Boyd?

    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.

    And get picked right before Tim Lincecum, who is now pitching very tidily in the rotation of the San Francisco Giants.

    How any competent GM could believe that Stubbs was a better short- and long-term prospect than Lincecum I have absolutely no idea.

    If you are going to use that logic you better be pretty upset with anyone who picked in the top 9 last year because Lincecum is ahead of everyone from that draft.

    I completely get where they were all coming from though. I wouldnt have picked Tim.

    Stubbs is probably performing the worst of the top 10 so far. Rowell is his only competition, and he's at the same level of competition but 4 years younger. Lincoln had surgery, but TJ isn't the death sentence it used to be so he's only on hold.

    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.

    What would you expect from your first pick in a draft? That should be a guide to your definition of "bust."

    I dont think we should be bemoaning our pick. We have a 22 year old who is playing hurt in the MWL. If he were 24 years old and still in A ball, then sure, we could gripe about it.

    If he is truly injured and has been since he was drafted (to the point where it is affecting his play in a negative way), then shouldn't they shut him down for a while? Or will we be hearing that he's been playing hurt for 4 years and that's why he's only in AA?

    Last year he had a different injury. This year he has had turf toe the entire season. He will probably require surgery after the season.

    Sorry about his injuries. Coming into the draft last year, Stubbs' hitting was cause for concern. After a year with the Reds that hasn't changed. Number 8 pick in the draft.

    Re: Drew Stubbs

    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).
