    Not quite. Sitting at .696 after the triple.

    Stubbs is now OPSing .726. Could Stubbs have a 20/20 season? He's currently on pace to hit 21 home runs and steal 38 bases.

    I still maintain this is the human element of the game. He's clearly not a leadoff hitter. Power, speed and defense from the #7 hitter.

    I think he's not a lead off hitter right now. It's still possible that he could get on base enough later in his career to be a nice lead off hitter. I see no reason to move him from where he is right now though.

    Unfortunately, our current leadoff hitter isn't a leadoff hitter either. But things are rollin.

    O-Cab has been rakin' since moving to lead-off. His avg. and obp have been noteworthy and commendable since the switch. What more does he have to do?

    Keep doing it for the rest of the season.

    Fine. But I don't get slagging on what Cabrera has done in terms of approach at the plate since moving into the spot. He's been exactly what you want from a leadoff hitter.

    I would still avoid Stubbs in the leadoff spot if he is hitting 15+ HR's a year. That is just too much power to waste in the leadoff spot.

    He's been much better than expected in the 1 hole. I think that is cause for great celebration. His spunk and veteranness are a key factor to what they've done as a team so far this year.

    His poor career showing in bases on balls is a big concern over the long haul to sustain success. Perhaps both of their successes have been affected by having much better hitters hitting behind them, who knows.


    Just a reminder he's OpSing 30 points lower than Stubbs for the year.....with below average defense.

    Yet, Stubbs should be waived, and Cabrera team MVP.

    Re: Drew Stubbs: Uncle

    Who wants Stubbs waived? Who says Cabrera is MVP? Must every position taken on this board be exaggerated until they have no meaning?

    Why does one have to be celebrated at the expense of the other?

    Seems to me, Dusty made a cagey move in getting Stubbs out of the leadoff spot, a position he is not particularly well suited for at the moment and perhaps maybe never. The human element, it is a factor. And Cabrera seems to fully be embracing his role there and actually has tailored his approach to the slot.

    I just don't get being down on either player at this juncture.
