ESPN Fantasy Baseball Focus, Jason Grey Jeff (NY) What is your outlook on Drew Stubbs? Jason Grey Only fantasy value will be in steals, and I still question if he can get on-base enough to use his wheels (not that that's ever stopped the Reds) - there's some September value with his speed if you're desperate in the category and can't get EY Jr. www.espn.com

Monday Ten Pack, Kevin Goldstein Brandon Allen, 1B, Diamondbacks, (Triple-A Reno) Here's a quick quiz: Who is the best position-playing prospect in the Arizona system? The answer is Allen, and when you take a further step back, it's not even close. On yet another run in Reno (11-for-21 in last five games), Allen is now batting .348/.427/.697 in 34 games for the Aces since being acquired from the White Sox, while adding six stolen bases to prove that he's not the lumbering slugger that his 240-pound frame might suggest. Combine what he's doing with the production the D'backs have gotten from first base this year, and everything is lined up for him entering next spring with the job to lose. www.baseballprospectus.com
