    Re: Stubbs Promoted to AAA!!!

    The previous GM's prefered to wait till about June 1 to bring guys up to avoid Super 2 status.....not sure if Jockety is of the same ilk. He waited this year on Jay but that may have been because he had just taken over.
    Let's play two!!!

    Sweet also managed 2006 first-round Draft pick Drew Stubbs this season. The outfielder batted .277 with seven homers, 57 RBIs and 33 steals combined over Class A Sarasota, Double-A Chattanooga and Louisville.

    Stubbs batted .293 in 19 games with Louisville and is slated to play in the Arizona Fall League. He played center field exclusively, but could move to the other two outfield positions next year.

    Like Bruce last season, Stubbs was pushed for the greater challenge of Triple-A closer to the end of the season to prepare him for next year.

    "He held his own," Sweet said. "He left the season knowing he can play there next year. He'll come back, and he'll be, not a veteran, but he's been to most of the ballparks and knows what to expect. He's a very good player. Obviously, he's talented. But he made adjustments while he was with us. That's what you like to see."

    Yeah and the Reds are also about to announce they have signed corey patterson to a 7 year deal, making CF a position locked up, leaving only LF for Drew

    Is this just to make him more versatile or is there really a plan to make him a corner guy? Seems like his value would be much higher in CF than on a corner.

    Not sure if this has already been posted. Shows Stubbs cranking a breaking pitch on the inside half... You can see the power is there.
