Disclaimer at the outset:
This is NOT a thread in any way to bash Drew Stubbs, who I hope against hope catches fire, and soon, if only to be an asset in a deal this summer.
Now, on to the show. They were drafted in the same year, do I have that right? One the first rounder with all the expectations, and the other far later, the guy flying below the radar?
As the years have unfolded, I think we can agree that Heisey has outperformed Stubbs (or at least matched him), and the contrast to the start of their 2009 campaigns could not be more stark.
My question is an organizational one: If Heisey has rocketed past Stubbs as a prospect, and one could make the argument that he has, is there a psychological barrier to an organization, say, the Reds, admitting that and allowing themselves to view the lesser heralded and lower drafted Heisey as being more of a propsect than the more heralded Stubbs?
Is Heisey a better prospect than Stubbs at this point? They have Heisey at a level lower, but, man, in all fairness, perhaps those two ought to be switched.
Have at it, folks.
