BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)With Angel Pagan broken and Gregor Blanco going 0-for-2014, what realistic CF move can Sabean make at the deadline?
(drmorris75 from SF)
Center fielders aren't cheap at the deadline. I'd normally say Drew Stubbs but you'd have to buy high. But focus on someone who can play defense mostly and not embarrass themselves swinging a bat. (Matt Sussman)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bubba Starling: future 4th outfielder a possibility? Drew Stubbs light? BA says he's the best defensive OF and best OF arm in the Carolina league. Surely a team is going to give him multiple chances right?
(Marco from Dallas)
The question is... what IS Drew Stubbs light? Is that a major leaguer? 5th outfielder to me. Not going to hit. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bubba Starling: Has been doing very well in July consistently. It's one month, but he's always had hot streaks but he sustained them for the most part last month and has hit .289/.346/.483 since Mid-June. Slowly coming together? New (technically old because they are his High School) mechanics working? Think he'll make the bigs on power/speed alone like Drew Stubbs?
(Dave from KC)
If Bubba makes it to the majors it's based on his CF defense (very good) and his draft status. I don't believe he'll ever hit. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of year can we expect out of Drew Stubbs in Colorado? Will he hold on to the job all year?
(Cranberry from New York, NY)
Stubbs is what he is at this point from an offensive standpoint. That isn't changing after you factor in for Coors. Rockies are just hoping he can play some defense. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any NL-only 4th OF'ers or equivalent that you really like? I'm thinking of someone along the lines of Allen Craig a few yearsa ago that flashed some promise but was in line to back up at the start of the season.
(mj1453 from chicago)
I like Drew Stubbs for the Colorado factor and because Corey Dickerson is no sure thing, Jon Jay as a sneaky value proposition behind the oft-injured Peter Bourjos, and Nate McLouth as a sneaky source of speed even as a backup. (Mike Gianella)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Mark. Regarding your anecdote on the hit tool above, Springer and Bryant are obviously top prospects, but both have shown some serious swing-and-miss. Do you think either or both of them will strike out too much at the MLB level for their tools to translate?
(Ed from Seattle)
Even with the swing and miss, I think both will do enough with the bat and the contact will consistently be loud enough that they will contribute in the big leagues. I've long been the low man on the totem pole with Springer, thinking he'd end up more like Drew Stubbs, but he's proving me wrong with every monster performance along his minor league progression. I still think the performance dips as MLB pitchers figure out how to pitch around him some. (Mark Anderson)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Realistic ceiling for Lewis Brinsonis, Chris Young or B.J. Upton?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
I really don't know yet.. It's very early. People love to comp Brinson to other black guys in baseball. He's just as likely to end up as the next Craig Gentry or Drew Stubbs. I think he is going to be a very good defensive center fielder, and I like the potential with the bat. He might not be a big average guy, but he has excellent raw pop. The full-season level will tell us more. Its still so early in the process. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who are your favorite MLB players?
(Brian from Boston)
My favorite player is Derek Jeter. He's number one for me. After Jeter, I love watching Elvis, Brandon Phillips, Miguel Cabrera swing a bat, Drew Stubbs in the outfield, Bryce Harper doing anything. I could probably list a bunch. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)In a keeper league, I have Norichika Aoki and Michael Brantley as my 3rd OF & top bench player (1B & DH spots are taken by Prince & Morneau). I have an offer to trade either one of them to upgrade my pitching staff (same trade, they're interchangeable). PECOTA prefers Aoki, but I'm worried he will regress heavily in 2013, do you have any thoughts?
(ttt from Manhattan)
Howdy, Triple-T. I'm with PECOTA here. I do see some regression for Aoki, but I don't think it will be heavy. The speed looks legitimate, and while I think he might slip in HR a little bit, the numbers overall should be similar. Brantley is the guy I'd move. The Indians offense is loaded, and while Baseball Prospectus's own Jason Martinez has Brantley and Drew Stubbs both starting, I wouldn't be surprised to see Brantley not play quite as much as he did last year. Plus, Brantley doesn't really do any one thing especially well. I think this is a no brainer. I don't know what your offer is, but I'd move Brantley. (Mike Gianella)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat today. Anyway the Reds could package a deal starting with Drew Stubbs and Homer Bailey / Mike Leake for something involving either Dexter Fowler or Jacoby Ellsbury? If not, what else would they need to include?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
I know that Fowler and Ellsbury have both been dangled, but I'm not sure what kind of return each team is looking for. Personally I'm not a Fowler fan -- his approach at the plate is a total disaster, and he either hasn't been able or willing to make adjustments. Still not sure what kind of player Ellsbury is long-term, so if I'm a GM, i'm reticent to make a move for him.

Also, I still believe in Stubbs and wouldn't necessarily want to sell low on him. I always worry about trading big-league starters, too. You can never have enough pitching! (Ian Miller)
2012-11-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Great chat. I am curious for a little insight on the Reds. What potential do you see out of Todd Frazier over a full year? Will Billy Hamilton make it up this year and if so, is the Drew Stubbs era over?
(Tommy from Queen City)
Hey Tommy, thanks for the kind words. I certainly want to see Billy Hamilton in the bigs, but he's probably going to need a lot more reps in the OF before he plays at the major league level.

Not sure what to make of Drew Stubbs, frankly. I think he's a much better player than what we saw this year. So I think we see a little bounceback from Stubbs but, if he continues to struggle, maybe Hamilton is ready to come up mid-year? Wild guess. (Ian Miller)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any non-superstar/star-level players who could be non-tendered that teams should kick the tires on?
(jlarsen from chicago)
With the caveat that I did less than two seconds of research, some interesting names to me are Kyle Blanks, George Kottaras, Nyjer Morgan, Mark Reynolds, Brendan Ryan, Gaby Sanchez, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, Drew Stubbs, Dallas Braden, Philip Humber, Tommy Hunter, Jair Jurrjens, Mike Pelfrey, and Jerome Williams. (Geoff Young)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Professor! Tell me about what you see in Billy Hamilton. Besides the obvious! I see little reason for the Reds not to stick him in CF next spring (or this winter) and see if he can get it down defensively. He's got to move off of SS, yes? 2B is locked up for the Reds for awhile, and CF seems the best spot to get him in the lineup, especially if Drew Stubbs is what he is at this point...
(ddufourlogger from Louisville, KY)
Changing positions isn't as easy as just penciling him into the lineup at the 8. Hamilton is a well above-average athlete, and I agree with you that his skill-set might be better suited in CF, but the process of transition isn't an overnight situation. It would take time to acclimate to the routes/angles/responsibilities of the position, and that would need to occur as the bat continues to develop. It's a lot to put on a young player. I'm still not sold that his bat is going to provide much at the highest level. If you want the best Hamilton possible, you keep him in the minors for at least another season (and possibly two) in order to properly develop the bat and make the necessary transition to the outfield. If you want a big result, the extra patience will be worth it. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of ceiling do you predict for Brett Jackson (CF) of the Cubs' system? I've heard predictions ranging from Drew Stubbs to Ray Lankford. Does he have All-Star potential in center, or should I be concerned about his woefully high strikeout rate?
(Britt from New York, NY)
The strikeout rate is definitely a concern, but he has enough secondary skills to be valuable even as a .250 hitter. Drew Stubbs seems an inapt comparison because so much of Stubbs' value is tied to his outstanding defense. The big question for me is whether he can stick in center. If Jackson has to move to right, that would obviously put more pressure on his bat, and might only make him a second-division type. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs and Cameron Maybin both have similar skill sets, and seem to be raked close to one another. Which do you prefer this year? Why?
(Jeff from Atlanta)
I'll take Stubbs. Longer track record, more power, better lineup, still lots of SBs. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's Drew Stubbs' ceiling? A decent power, good speed, good D CF with a shitty contact tool is still pretty valuable.
(Immanuel #Want from Prussia)
I think you are looking at it ( or very close to it). Stubbs isn't a good defensive centerfielder. He's a fantastic defensive centerfielder. I would pay to watch Stubbs play CF. (Jason Parks)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which outfielder makes a better keeper,Drew Stubbs or Jason Werth? Thanks
(jimkozlowski from BOSTON)
I like Werth a lot as a bounceback candidate, which makes this a close call. Give me Stubbs, but not by much. If you can deal one for a significantly higher return than the other, do it. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs went 20/30 last year. He plays CF. His manager loves toolsy, aggressive ball players. Why do I always think he's a bad week from Tacoma or wherever the Reds have their AAAs?
(JT from Michigan)
I've already played marriage counselor twice during this chat, so why not take a turn as an armchair psychologist? You have abandonment issues. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-04-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a Reds, I'm loving the outpouring of confidence in Drew Stubbs across the blogosphere. But other than Stubbs being a bit less of a fly ball hitter, convince me he's different than Chris Young. That's not a bad thing, certainly, but has his ceiling been overstated?
(Rick from Chicago)
Yes, I think it has. I think we saw it last year. Given his age and overall abilities, if he stays right were he is, that's not a bad thing. It's not a star, but it's a very valuable thing nonetheless. (Steven Goldman)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs: Another Chris Young (not that there's anything wrong with that) or does he have a higher ceiling?
(Rick from Chicago)
Stubbs and Young are fairly similar players. While Stubbs is generally considered the better fielder, he also strikes out way more often, and he's just a year younger. I don't think there's a whole lot of difference. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have three outfielders I can extend next year in a NL only 4x4 league: CarGo at 10, Andrew McCutcheon at 15 and Drew Stubbs at 5. Leaning toward a 3-year extension for CaGo, a 1-year extension for McCutcheon and a 2-year extension for Stubbs. Your thoughts?
(PadresOnTop from sandiego)
Does the length of their extension alter the salary? If not, I'd say definitely 3 for CarGo given the low price. McCutchen could go two. (Tommy Bennett)
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Drew Stubbs vastly underrated because he plays w Votto & Bruce, or is just me? He does a lot of things on the baseball field to help you win.
(Matt from Chicago)
Well he's obviously worse than Votto and Bruce. He'll need to do better than league average OBP at least once before I get very excited. (Tommy Bennett)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs put up a .189 ISO last year. Is that his peak? Can he survive while striking out 30% of the time?
(Bronson from Austin)
He's always going to strike out, and will never hit for a high average, but I don't think he can make some small strides there. Even still you are talking about 20+ home runs, 30 stolen bases and in my opinion he's the best defensive center fielder in the game. That's one helluva player. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Joe, Care to share some of "your guys" for this season?
(Fred from Houston)
I've been including some of these in the pieces I've been writing for Rotowire, but off the top of my head...Trevor Cahill, Drew Stubbs, Alfredo Aceves, Rickie Weeks, Dexter Fowler, Chris Outfielder Young. Ruben Gotay if finds his way to the majors. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey - Drew Stubbs or Jamie Garcia - which will be better?
(Bob from Long Island)
One's a fifth starter who might grow up to be a 4. The other is a slick-fielding everyday center fielder who needs to cut the Ks. I'd bet on Stubbs to be the more valuable of the two.

Either there's an alligator gnawing at my elbow or I think I've reached my pitch count... (Jay Jaffe)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)What do you expect from Drew Stubbs in 2010?
(colavito from Memphis, TN)
I think he'll be below average offensively, but great defensively. Overall, he should be worth a couple wins. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the power that Drew Stubbs showed in his brief MLB stint legitimate?
(Jeff from Pittsburgh)
If not, it's awfully damn close. I could see him doing 15-20 home runs annually, maybe even a bit more. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-10-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)Who makes your minor league Gold Glove team this year?
(Ryan from Utica)
I'd have to think about it longer, but it's a really fun idea. Two Giants come to mind with Posey at C, and Adrianza at SS (if you don't count Escobar). Drew Stubbs in CF, Matt Dominguez at 3B. Still thinking . . . . (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)This seems a slight year for interesting callups, Bumgarner's spot start and the Posey-drama aside. Have any of the youngsters called up since, say, the ASB caught your eye? Hudson, Avila, Young, someone else?
(Jim Clancy from Exhibition Stadium)
Neftali Feliz is the obvious one. Very fun to watch, although he may be tiring. I'm a Drew Stubbs fan, too. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-08-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Drew Stubbs?
(dantroy from davis)
No time like the present. Which I said a week or two ago as well, but we're all still waiting. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Has Chris Heisey surpassed Drew Stubbs in centerfield for the Reds? Or will/should they move Heisey to left?
(Scott from DC)
They should move Heisey over as Stubbs is the best defensive outfielder in the minors. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best route for the Reds to take for the rest of year?
(Scott from DC)
Promote Drew Stubbs, sell. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-11-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)How little would Drew Stubbs need to hit for him to be a net positive?
(Ryan from Cincinnati, OH)
You'll see tommorow? I like Stubbs, but I'm a tools sucker. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)With quality young talent like Jay Bruce, Johnny Cueto, Edinson Volquez, Joey Votto, and others, do you think the Reds are close to contending?
(smitty25039 from Charleston)
If you haven't already, check out Kevin Goldstein's article on which teams might be the "next Rays" in the NL. http://baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=8203
The Reds are close, but as Goldstein says, the outlook is "semi-bright, but not perfect." One big problem is the outfield corners; they've got nobody now without Dunn, and it doesn't look like minor league center fielder Drew Stubbs is quite ready to make enough impact with the bat to move Jay Bruce to a corner. According to Goldstein, Cincinnati is also pretty weak in pitching prospects beyond the group that already hit the majors this season, and the 2008 results from Homer Bailey were discouraging. Still, Cueto and Volquez are a fantastic young duo, and I'm pretty high on Ramon Ramirez, too, who pitched well in September and has a nasty changeup. Not in 2009, but by 2010 they could be fighting for a division title if that starting trio continues to develop. (Caleb Peiffer)
2008-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs: (a) lifetime minor leaguer; (b) 4th OF for a few years and then out of baseball; (c) bona fide starter for a few years
(chrismusillo from cinti)
C -- at the very least. Could be more than that even. (Kevin Goldstein)

2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener RoundtableAt least leading off with Chris Dickerson is an acceptable idea. Leading off with Drew Stubbs is not. If the Reds have Stubbs and Orlando Cabrera atop their lineup, you can guarantee they'll finish below .500. (Jay Jaffe)
