Re: Would You Be On Board for Shin-Soo Choo?
I'd love Choo to be the Reds LF next year, but no way I trade Leake right now, especially for a one year rental.
Jeremy Guthrie just signed a three year $25M contract. JEREMY GUTHRIE!
Starting pitchers who are young, healthy and can give you 150+ innings around league average production are rare and very valuable. It may seem like the Reds have a surplus of starting pitching, but I'm betting next year around June, it won't seem that way at all.
While I like Choo, I'm sure the Reds can find a suitable LF for much less than the price of Mike Leake.
