    Re: Stubbs to Chatt

    I wish Drew all the luck in the world in AA.

    His final High A stat line at Sarasota is fairly close to his final line at Dayton last year:

    1. 2006 Billings: .252/.368/.400 for an OPS of .768 w/ 6 HR and 19 SB in 210 ABs
    2. 2007 Dayton: .270/.364/.421 for an OPS of .785 w/ 12 HR and 23 SB in 497 ABs
    3. 2008 Sarasota: .261/.366/.406 for an OPS of .772 w/ 5 HRs and 27 SB in 202 ABs

    This is amazing consistency really. I previously wonderd about his home/road splits. Those have moved fairly close together in the last month, and there is only a 34 point differential in batting avarerage now.

    That's good to hear. Hopefully he can hit better and show more power.

    The rest of the year in Chattanooga, most of 2009 in Louisville, and a September 2009 callup to the Reds. It is a tall order, but I hope Stubbs is up to the challenge.

    Good news. Success at Chatt will drive his value up. If not, well at least we can stop waiting I guess. I wonder if another move is on the way. Dorn, Henry, Cumberland and Stubbs make quite a crowd. Dorn could play 1B, but Gutierrez needs to play. Henry is hot. Dickerson is kind of hot. Maybe a move on the major league team (Corey????) and a series of promotions.

    Now it is time to see how much the FSL was holding his power numbers down...

    Could be a showcase.

    that's ridiculous, of course.

    if Stubbs plays well enough to interest a team in need of a young RHHing CFer, then we'll keep him because that team is us.

    I'm surprised that they promoted Cumberland before he got to play in the AA All-Star game. I was told that was the plan a week or two ago.

    Re: Stubbs to Chatt

    I agree with princeton's premise of challenge thy hitters, but he was pretty damn challenged in Sarasota and came up wanting.

    A needed promotion based on who he is and not what he's done.

    Past April of this year, his OPS is anemic, below .700. His primary weapon, OBP was merely adequate. He had a hot 5 days in July, just like he did in June.

    He's been awful for over 2 months now.
