    That's about the third time in a week Stubbs has dropped a catchable ball on the warning track. That said, 90% of CFs aren't there to catch it in the first place.

    Rhodes throwing a ball in the zone 0-2 wasn't exactly a great idea either.
    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.

    Now 8-6 as Valdez singles in a run.

    Drew Stubbs is the worst so-called "great" defender that I have ever seen. He is a really fast CF who is good not great with the glove.

    Stubbs gets to a ton of baseballs that most do not. Rhodes was bound to have a night like this. It happens but still a tough game after the Votto shot.

    His problem is the catching balls on/near the wall.....

    And mental lapses.

    And pretty much everything other than being fast.

    True, and that's why I say he's "good" defensively. But when people ask questions like "Is he the best defensive CF in MLB" I have to laugh. Franklin Gutierrez is much better. (And I'm sure there are others, but that is one I know for sure.)

    Re: 6-29-10 Phillies at Reds

    I lam so amused how up and down this board gets during games. First someone's great, then he sucks, then he's great again, then he sucks, then he should be fired, then he should be given a huge extention. Welcome to baseball where NO ONE is perfect all the time. Bad things happened when I popped into this thread so I'm out of here now.

    What hurt Stubbs on that play is right at the end he left his feet and it threw the timing off. If he just stays on his feet he might have held on.

    I know you were making a general statement and not directed at anyone in particular, but I will say I'm pretty consistent on Stubbs. He gets free pass after free pass from Dusty IMO. Heisey would be my starting CF no questions asked. You know, based on little things like "performance in games."
