    Whether it's Stubbs, Mesoraco, Stewart, Rolen or Dusty Baker, we all should remember we're not as smart as we think we are. "I was wrong" may not taste good coming out, but you're not going to choke on it either.

    I have nothing against Drew Stubbs. I want him to succeed.

    I was against just handing him the starting job in CF based on a few good weeks at the end of the 2009 season. I thought he and Chris Dickerson should battle for the job during ST or at least platoon for awhile.

    There were a few others who agreed with me. I doubt any of us were/are rooting for Stubbs to fail. (And I have never seen him loaf.)

    Shoot us for having an opinion.

    That's OK but I draw the line at mind darts.

    Boy, I'd hate to see what it would be like if the Reds were playing badly.

    The contact rate is still an issue, but I don't think there's any argument left about his power.
    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.

    I love days like this when I'm COMPLETELY WRONG about Drew Stubbs. I'll stand up and admit it.

    Keep proving me wrong kid! Heck of a job today at Wrigley and big kudos to you for your first 3 home run game.

    Any chance Stubbs just homered the "Uncle" off of this thread title?

    I must have missed something, but where did that come from anyway?

    Doesn't it mean something like "we've had enough" of Drew Stubbs? I'm not sure... but I think it is time to remove it. He's here to stay.

    when i was a kid & two old boys fought one would cry 'uncle' when he had had enough. i am not sure why he cried 'uncle' instead of 'i surrender' or 'stop'. i took the use of 'uncle' in this thread in this context.

    Sounds right. In any case, I think the discussion has now moved beyond that level, and merits the simple (but elegant) title "Drew Stubbs." JMHO.

    Too late. [joking]

    We were barely one month into the new season, and yes, Stubbs struggled (as do a lot of players). But to compare him to Patterson and Taveras was over-reach IMO, and a downright insult to Stubbs. :
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
