    I will miss watching Stubbs run down balls in the gap, but not weakly waving at curves in the dirt.

I hope there is another trade coming. I don't see how this improves the team.

    I have my doubts. Guys don't generally start playing center at age 30 and actually being able to play it, particularly after being corner outfielders (versus maybe a shortstop or second baseman making the transition out there at 30).

    I'm thinking the same thing. Drop Phillips and Choo in front of Votto/Ludwick/Bruce and I think this offense becomes a serious force.

    Well, one year of him isn't the greatest.

    Assuming Stubbs doesnt transform into something different, switching Stubbs for Choo looks like a 2 WAR upgrade.

    This is exactly the type of move a team positioned to make a serious run at a world seiries should make...
    "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

    Over / Under on Number of Phillips this year?

    I'll say 31.5.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...
