And you are ignoring that Ellsbury outperformed Stubbs at every level, skipped rookie ball altogether and did it a year younger. Your pointing to a hot month, I'm looking at his professional career where he's failed to hit at Billings, Dayton and now Sarasota. 2 months of hitting .200 with no power means very little to me. His OBP will not stand up to that when better pitchers realize he won't chase bad pitches but can't hit good ones.
