    Stubbs our best chance to send WT to the bech in 2010

    We should all be pulling very hard for Stubbs.Dusty has to fall in love with him between now and the start of the 2010 season or else it will be Willy T starting again next year.Oh yeah and leading off also.

    Stubbs is looking pretty good, at least over the last week in case no one is watching.

    I was just about to post that. Man, we're screwed I think. Taveras makes like $5 mil next year doesn't he? That's like automatically starting for Reds management. Stubbs doesn't have the big time numbers really, but for whatever reason he just seems a LOT better than Taveras. Well, his numbers are actually better than Taveras, but you get what I'm saying. Didn't he hit more HR's today than Taveras has all year?

    Hopefully he's turning the corner here the past few games. If he can cut down on the K's Dusty will have nothing bad he can say about him.

    He's already a better base stealer.

    Is Taveras due back this year? It would be laughable for him to get pt over Stubbs at this point.

    Dusty does some pretty laughable things.

    If Stubbs gets to start the rest of the season in CF he will most likely have more 2b's, 3b's, HR's, RBI's, BB's, and K's than Taveras. Not that the K's mean anything when he surpasses Taveras in all other categories.

    The only thing he will probably do less of than Willy? Making horrid reads in the outfield.


    It is sickening to think a guy hitting .246 is severely out performing a guy we have seen start almost 100 games this year.

    I would say that there is no way Stubbs beats out Willy because Willy is so fast but Stubbs is fast to.Maybe Dusty will decide who will start by having the two of them race.Fastest man wins the job.

    willy will start next season because walt, dusty, and bob c. cant be paying a guy that much and not play him. more importantly, they dont want to suck up their pride and realize willy was a terrible signing

    I'd like to think that maybe they'd sit Stubbs for that reason because they did something similar this year (benching Dickerson for Taveras), but I think this scenario might be different because the organization has more invested in Stubbs because he's a former first round pick...

    Since when has results mattered to Dusty. Stubbs could win by 20 feet and I doubt Dusty would notice.

    I'll agree with this. These guys all have too much pride and think they are smarter than the average fan. Walt wont admit the mistake unless he has no choice, and Dusty will play a player until he starts hitting to rub it in a fans face.
