    Stubbs to the Marlins?

    Always looking for ways to get stubbs off the roster and the Marlins are looking for a center fielder, maybe flip him for Chris Coghlan or Donovan Solano?

    I would imagine Drew is going to be the Reds' starting center fielder on Opening Day 2013.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    If he can stay healthy, I think he has a good shot at it. Should be a breezy summer in GABP this year. He actually upped his strikeout rate in 2012 over 2011, when he whiffed 205 times. (30.5 to 30.1) That is hard to believe.

    By month:

    April: 25.8
    May: 26.7
    June: 25.0
    July: 30.0
    August: 36.0
    September: 37.7

    He really got after it in the last two months of the season. From August 1st on he struck out 36.4% of the time. If he stays healthy, gets the 681 PA that he got in 2011 and continues at that same rate he will obliterate the K record by striking out a whopping 248 times. In his last 40 starts he posted a .388 OPS. By the end of the season he was going to Wilson Valdez for batting tips. Yet somehow managed to start every game in the playoffs. LOL. I love our manager.

    I would just non tender him a contract. He is such a waste of space on this roster. I'm really sick of hearing about his speed and D because who ever takes his place will be a upgrade.

    why is BP batting 4th

    Re: Stubbs to the Marlins?

    I would love for Stubbs to not work on his plate discipline for some other team. That being said, if he stays a Red? "He's fast, dude...that means he bats leadoff."

    So count me in for the over.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Under. He won't get enough at bats if he plays like he did last year.

    That's my guess. I'm not sure he'll be a full time starter next year, whether it's in Cincinnati or elsewhere.

    If we can't find an affordable full-time CF option, I'd be willing to consider picking up an inexpensive left-handed bat and setting up a platoon. While the strikeout rate is still a little on the high side, Stubbs historically hits lefties a lot better than righties.

    Yeah but his HR off of Cordero was huge, man. Just need to get him going.
