    If anybody needed proof that he does have power, that should do it. He's now got 10 HR is less than a half season's worth of at bats. He still needs to make a lot more contact, but power is not the issue.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

The speed and the power are a tease, because while it's there, I don't think he's ever going to be able to put it consistently together as a major league player.
    So you are saying he is Rolando Roomes?
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Good call. I have fond memories of Rolando Roomes hitting a pair of game winning HRs back during the 1989 season. Too bad almost every one of his other plate appearances I remember resulted in a strikeout.

    There was something in the air that night
    The stars were bright, Rolando
    They were shining there for you and me
    For liberty, Rolando
    Though we never thought that we could lose
    There's no regret
    If I had to do the same again
    I would, my friend, Rolando
    Yes, if I had to do the same again
    I would, my friend, Rolando...

    Needed him tonight! I"m ok with him in the line up because we have no one else, but he doesn't need to be lead off now.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Drew is up to .627 on the year, and considering the start he had, I think that's pretty decent. Numbers are certainly trending upward.

    In a SSS from the 7 hole (33 AB's) he's hitting .333/.389/.545/.934. I hope he continues to thrive from the 7 hole.

    Not sure if the 7 hole is the reason (could be that it helped his head), the day off when Heisey played to watch tape and see the uppercut in the swing or if he's just Streaky, but I think Stubbs may be a positive offensive guy for a little while.

    The trick will be to see if it lasts past Memorial Day.

    I'm just glad he's getting consistent PA. All players need to adjust when they come up to the majors. I don't know if he'll adjust enough to stick, but with his glove and speed, he should get every opportunity to do so.

    Good to see and I hope it continues. I also hope that he can produce like this one day out of the leadoff spot. By my count, Reds now have four "7 hole" hitters between Stubbs, Cabrera, Hernanigan, and whoever is playing LF.

    Add Phillips vs. RHP.

    He has been looking better and better as of late at the plate.

    Absolutely, given his age, his green-ness, speed and glove, I'm hoping the Reds give Stubbs a ton of rope.

    Because when he's on he gives the Reds a dimension they haven't had a long, long time.

    With his ability to take a walk, Stubbs only needs to hit around .240-.250 to be an extremely productive player (accounting for defensive value).

    If he keeps making quality PAs, the numbers will take care of themselves.

    Yep. Been saying it all along. 500-600 ABs this year, hitting lower in the order if he struggles at the top. Development continues at the major league level for almost every player.
