Stubbs had an OPS of .610 last season. He strikes out way too much for a leadoff guy.

I agree that trading for a year of Choo is a bit questionable...but I don't think Cincinnati really overpaid for him.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
