Is Drew Stubbs a bust? No.
Will Dew Stubbs be a bust? Maybe.
Was Tim Lincecum the better pick? Probably.
Will Time Lincecum have been the better pick? Maybe.
I'd go "definitely" on the last two.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Lincecum is on the cover of SI this week. Stubbs isn't.
One has to wonder though, if the Reds had chosen Lincecum, would he be here right now? Or would he have gotten the Homer Bailey development treatment? I think it's at least debatable that his production would be maybe a little less, seeing as the Reds really seem to struggle with correctly bringing up pitchers.
I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
“This one was a perfect one. I don’t know if I can find a better one, better timing. He [Price] really said some great things there. It really encouraged us to go back and do what we do. … I didn’t know he could speak like that.” Brayan Pena 5/21/14
In 2003, everyone thought that the Twins made a horrible decision in drafting Joe Mauer over Mark Prior.
It takes more than two years to evaluate a draft pick.
