    How many guys do catch that ball given where Stubbs started the play?

    He's also hitting .186.

    A good CF makes that play easily. Stubbs is one of the worst CF's I have ever seen around the wall. That's because the guy lacks baseball instincts.

    He plays like an athlete that has no idea what to do on the field.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Yes. But that isn't why the comment was made. The comment was made because Stubbs didn't catch a 402 foot crush job by the opposing pitcher.

    Still was an accurate comment.

    I don't know, because he is still pretty good in center.

    He looked like he was getting to it, but as sometimes happens with Stubbs, he gets messed up when he nears the outfield wall.

    It was a nice job getting back to the ball, but then he either turns the wrong way or misses it or whatever.

    Now 8-1.

    The Reds are terrible and I can't watch this garbage any more.

    He could be the best CFer ever and he'd still be worthless right now.

    I have to say, and not only because of that play, but Stubbs' glove is/was extremely overhyped. As are a lot of other Reds defenders.

    Kevin Goldstein argued the other day that Stubbs is the best defensive center fielder in the game. Clearly scouts still think he can go get it with the best of them.

    Stubbs is good on most plays, he just seems to have trouble going back near the wall.

    On the bright side, Latos won't be that expensive next off season when he reaches arbitration

    That argument doesn't pass the sniff test.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
