Stubbs or Young

Postby MarinersFan21 » Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:31 am

Made the mistake of drafting Drew Stubbs and Chris Young not realizing how close they are in stats. Who is/will do better this year? Should I use one of them to try to trade (our league has alot of Reds bias, being were all from the area. That could play a role in a trade)?

I prefer Stubbs, as he has some upside.

I prefer Stubbs as well, but if your league is full of Reds fans maybe you can filp him for something good. I'd try floating trade offers for Stubbs like you're considering letting him go, then grudgingly "increase" your side of the trade to Young if they balk. Worth a shot.

Yea, those are 2 guys that are an absolute toss up. The edge going to Stubbs - better lineup. I'd consider trading one, together they'll kill your average.

I wouldn't worry about trying to decide which one. Get some trade offers and then decide. Way to close to call on these two.

I'd go with CBY, as he's more of a sure thing in terms of power than Stubbs is. CBY steals bases at a relatively efficient clip and it's not a stretch to expect 25-30 bases on the side.

I like CBY more. I expect slightly more HR and RBI out of CBY with Stubbs having slightly more SB.

Well, Stubbs' spring training has been disappointing. Yes granted, it's spring training but all these k's are not a good sign. I have decided to keep Stubbs over Young though. Question Is it worth it to keep Stubbs in the long run? I'm not sure what to do with him, plus spring training is kind of scaring me.

CBY is the better bet. Stubbs is a great player but he's got less experience and may slump this season while CBY is the wise choice for production this season. That said, having them both is not a bad thing. I'd try and deal Stubbs while his perceived-value is still high.
