Dusty has to shake up this lineup. What hes putting out there on a nightly basis isnt getting it done I read somewhere where Joe Maddon had like 45 different lineups in the teams first 45 games. Dusty hasn't changed the lineup other than injuries or the occasional day off for 81 games or so it seems. I had to vent. Sorry. Id say get rid of Stubbs but who would take him? Im sure now that Ive called him out he will tease us with his amazing hitting abilities and speed for a few games.

You know those questions like, who is the only player to hit 40 homers in a season and catch 10 fly balls in a game? You know, those combo type questions about who did two different things?
How about this one. Name the only player to strike out over 200 times in a season and go 0 for 50?
Im so glad somebody started this subject about stubbs.I have lost all patiance with stubbs.He has never done anything for this team with his bat.He has to be one of the worst hitters in the league and I would LOVE to know how the guy is still on the reds big league roster.Send him down to AAA or better yet trade him for anything.
I can spell,I just can't type!!
The 2013 projected arbitration Super 2 cutoff is 2.134. Drew Stubbs is just barely past that. In other words, if the Reds want to keep him next year, he's going to cost quite a bit more than the minimum salary. But let's be real: although Drew Stubbs has been disappointing, he hasn't been overall horrible. He's clearly in a slump, but his overall performance has been better than five of the hitters currently on the team.
Barring a trade the plan should be Drew in 2013 keeping things warm for Hamilton manning CF in 2014 and beyond.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Stubbs is like Paul Janish, he plays defense well enough that if he can hit 250 then he belongs on the major league roster.
But you got to hit 250. 220 isn't getting it done.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
