    Heck of a night so far for Stubbs:

    1-for-2 with a single, three walks, a HBP, two stolen bases (#12 and 13) and two outfield assists.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    You haven't seen the memo? He's a bust. Get with the program.

    Chris Richard hits a walk off grand slam against the bats, his second grand slam of the game. Wow.

    And Carolina is in a rain delay... in the 11th inning.

    The Carolina game was suspended by rain, tied 3-3. BTW, is it too early to call for a promotion of Stubbs to the big club? He could be the answer to the LF problem. Good speed, good defense, and the kid can hit.

    In all honesty, and I'm a big Stubbs fan, MLB pitching would kill him right now. Let Smokey work with him this year and maybe he could stick next year.

    You would know better than i would, and I'm not doubting that, I'm just curious as to why you would say that.

    LOL do you not know there are so many Reds fans that should be employed as MLB scouts? The silence of Stubbs detractors is becoming obvious. Dirt went on record that he was not pleased by the pick , but also at least spoke on his strengths and has steadfastly defended him based on his skill set.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    I am not a Stubbs detractor, far from it, but let me defend the "Stubbs detractors" for a moment. They were also silent when he stumbled badly out of the gate. My sense from the posts of several of them heading into this season was that they were going to let it go, so as not to beat the subject to death. So, yeah. It is far from obvious as to why folks who are suspcious of Stubbs' upside are silent...

    Seeing way too many pitches that make him look bad. In the majors, there's way too many good pitchers that would feed him a steady stream of pitches he doesn't handle well. Obviously, he is hitting well for AAA. But I see him facing the same sorts of MLB batting problems Jay Bruce has but worse. And without the power to make up for it.
