    Re: Vote: Stubbs or Heisey

    I'm way late to this debate but Stubbs has a .716 OPS in AAA. I love me some CF defense but the guy has to be able to hit a little bit.

    This is not a proclaimation about the future or potential of Stubbs - I'm just saying right now there's no way I'd promote him before Heisey.

Stubbs is absolutely dripping with potential, athleticism and tools. Although he’ll likely always struggle to hit for a high average due to his contact issues (25.4 K%), the left-handed hitter could still manage to bat .250-.270. He has just two homers on the year, but Stubbs has the potential to hit 10-15 with his fair share of walks in the Majors when he matures as a hitter. Currently, he has 36 steals in 42 attempts and plays a plus centerfield

    Obviously a mistake by the writer as Stubbs is a RH batter.

    Re: Vote: Stubbs or Heisey

    Per John Fay:

    Also, I forgot to post this earlier but I asked Dusty Baker if Drew Stubbs and Chris Heisey were considered for Chris Dickerson's roster spot.

    "Yeah," he said. "But they need to play."

    Meaning, right now, the time in the outfield is going to go Laynce Nix, Jonny Gomes, Willy Taveras and Jerry Hairston Jr.

    Stubbs numbers aren't all that good. He is hitting .268/.360/.366 with three homers, 37 steals and 31 RBI at Louisville. He’s struck out 84 times in 328 at-bats and has hit .200 over his last 10 games.

    “Maybe they don’t want to expose him,” an American League scout said. “As long as he’s in the minors, he’s a prospect.”

    Heisey is having the better year than Stubbs.

    He has combined to hit .339/.407/.553 with 16 homers, 16 steals and 56 RBI in 96 games at Double-A and Triple-A.

    "Meaning, right now, the time in the outfield is going to go Laynce Nix, Jonny Gomes, Willy Taveras and Jerry Hairston Jr."

    Just read that sentence. It really is amazing when you consider 2 short years ago our outfield read Adam Dunn, Josh Hamilton, and Ken Griffey Jr.

    I posted that in the monday game thread.

    I take that as we wont be seeing Stubbs or Heisey until 2011 unless they can play LF.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Drew Stubbs = Felix Pie = younger, cheaper Willy Taveras

    Trade him NOW
    Go BLUE!!!

    Stubbs is a better defender than those two but I get your point.

    I wonder if these are the same scouts Hal Mccoy talks to.

    The numbers are much closer now that Heisey has hit a rough patch.

    Heisey: .276/.308/.431/.739
    Stubbs: .275/.364/.371/.735
