I was reading Rob Neyer's chat over on ESPN during lunch today and came across this question:
Rob, what kind of player do you think Drew Stubbs can be? Someone posed the question to me recently (I'm a Reds fan) asking if I'd take Matt Kemp for Stubbs straight up. I said I would, but I definitely had to think about it. Your thoughts?

I would have to think about it, too. I'm intrigued by Stubbs' power/speed combination, but I don't know enough about his defense and I'd like to see him get on base more often. A *lot* more often.
It's an interesting question as Kemp has underperformed this season, and Stubbs has a 20-20 season under his belt in his first full major league season.
Here is a look at their stats:
It's rather amazing how similar their stats are this season. Who would you rather have in 2011?
