Amen. Comparing Stubbs to Taveras really is folly IMO.

Actually, though, if Stubbs stays at his current level and never improves his contact rate, his classified ad might end up resembling Patterson's at some point: skilled, aging CF with good power and speed; has trouble getting on base.

Stubbs is probably a better defender overall, I would guess--but Corey was and is pretty good out there too IIRC...

I do expect Stubbs to improve on his current numbers. But if he doesn't, don't we have to make this comparison eventually?
