    Well, at the very least, it was an opportunity to use strippers and Sunday School teachers in the same sentence, which cannot be neglected.

    Yup. Players peak physically early and mentally late. The late 20's is when you tend to get the best combination of the two.
    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.

    Re: Drew Stubbs

    I asked this question in the game thread, and I'll ask it in here too.

    Can the Reds make the playoffs with Drew Stubbs playing everyday?

    I know this thread doesn't show it, but I happen to like Drew Stubbs. I like his tools, I like his defense, and I think he's shown flashes of what he can do.

    However, he just struck out with the bases loaded and nobody out.

    Here was his line coming into tonight:
    .235/.303/.404/.706
    31 BB/104 Ks
    The trade deadline is this weekend. The Reds have Heisey up here and Dickerson rehabbing in the minors.

    What do you think?

    The Cards and Colorado made it last year and I don't see much of a difference between those three at this juncture.

    Absolutely. Pretty much every playoff team has a glaring weakness or two, not that I'm saying Stubbs is a glaring weakness. To compare it to 2009, I'd say it's the equivalent to the Phillies having Pedro Feliz at third base or the Twins having Carlos Gomez in center field. Sure, you'd like more offense, but the defense is huge compensation.

    Rasmus, not so much.
    Fowler's OPS by month in 2009:

    .818
    .688
    .705
    .762
    1.081
    .609

    OPS vs RHP: .729
    OPS on road: .717

    Not sure how good he really was.

    .266/.363/.406/.770 isn't bad.

    Season reminds me a lot of Gomes' offensive numbers. Same trend.

    Difference is he plays CF, not LF.

    After looking at his defensive "numbers" from last year, Fowler was bad out there.

    Was meaning more of the one huge month skewing the others.

    Re: Drew Stubbs

    Good point Doug, even with the humidor, Coors Field can be a boon to fast centerfielder types. The outfield is so huge and if you hit a gap and are fast it's almost an automatic triple.


    Anyway, despite striking out with the bases loaded, Drew got on base two times tonight. If he does that every night, we'll all be pretty happy.

    His leadoff walk in the 2nd was a great at bat.

    Re: Drew Stubbs

    Drew is still a big factor in why the staff has given up 56 fewer runs this season then at the same time last year. On base twice tonight. He is streaky, but needs to be left alone.
