But, if the Reds are insistent on getting a leadoff hitter, then trading for Shin Soo Choo is my number 1 target and plop him down in left.
Yes, I agree.
It sure would be nice to get a CF with a high OBP, but supposedly they were asking a king's ransom for Span.. If we are going to pay through the nose, I'd rather do it on a guy like Choo. Hopefully the Indians are in tear down mode this winter.
And yes, I'm also more worried about replacing Ludwick's production than I am in upgrading CF.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
