    I see a player who is going to tease with his potential his entire career. He is making absolutely no progress. You hit him at second. Your teams will lose alot. Just like Dusty's.

    If I was manager Jay Bruce. Maybe Ryan Hanigan. Someone who would get on base for Joey Votto. That will never happen with Drew Stubbs.

    Getting on base is 10 times more important than being fast. 100 times. 1,000 times. Infinity times.

    I think Cozart is suited well for the 2 hole.

    I guess we see different things from Stubbs in teh future, you see someone who has maxed out his potential, I see someone who with the right coaching can become a very talented and producing CF for the Reds for the next 5-7 years...

    Right coaching? He is on the wrong team then.

    They just about buried Frazier. I guess we know where he stands in the eyes of Reds mismanagement.

    Yes Dunn got better
    Encarnacion was never that good
    Kearns got hurt and that hampered his progress
    Yes Bruce is getting better

    Are you saying Votto hasn't gotten better?
    What about Hanigan or Phillips or Heisey and such?

    Am I a fan of the Reds major league coaching staff...not really but I am fan of some of their minor league instructors whom players like Stubbs will work with this offseason.
