    Once again Valdez over Gregorious.
    "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 has generally hit extremely well against Chicago. I'm sure they are trying everything to get him going.

    With Valdez, it must mean they have already decided Valdez is the back up MI for the playoffs and want to give him as many AB's as possible.

    I think the book is in on Stubbs and he is what he is, no more, possibly less. No reason to believe he will all of a sudden transform into something he has never been. He can string a few good games together but it just doesn't last.

    I've been looking at some stats today. There's a very solid argument that Stubbs has been the worst hitter in the National League among full season regulars at any position (excluding pitchers) this season.

    I too hope they get him going. Agree that Valdez will be on the post-season roster.

    I just asssumed that about Stubbs. I'd like to see the arguments for his competition.

    Well, only 18 players with at least 300 plate appearances have a lower OPS than Stubbs. Among all players with at least 500, he's the worst. Only two of those players in front of him (Justin Smoak and Casey Kotchman) have at least 450 PAs.

    So Stubbs is definitely in the running. My vote, though, probably goes to Brendan Ryan. He has a .544 OPS in 440 PAs, though it should be noted he plays in Safeco and at shortstop, so his numbers are at a suppressed position and in a suppressed park.
