That being said, if The Dusty would bat Dickerson leadoff and start him vs RHP, I'm completely fine with upgrading other positions of this ballclub.
If The Dusty is going to give the majority of playing time in CF to Taveras or Stubbs, then we need to upgrade CF.

But for now, Stubbs is performing every bit as well as Dickerson, maybe slightly better. Stubbs, unlike Dickerson, still has untapped potential to get even better. I'm not sure why you're so willing to trade a higher ceiling in favor of playing the similar floor - and that's nothing against Dickerson, but I believe Stubbs can provide similar production and more.
