Re: Would You Be On Board for Shin-Soo Choo?

The Reds are trying to win in 2013. I wouldn't deal guys who can contribute in 2013. Leake may appear to be the odd man out in the rotation, but he's going to be needed and will probably be integral to the team's success. Cingrani is the only real lefty hope in the organization and would be a big boost to the pen at some point in 2013. Get what's needed for other guys. Corcino is a fairly highly regarded arm. For a one year rental he and a useful outfielder for the mix like Heisey shoud be a pretty good basis for a deal.
Yeah, he's a one year rental. And I agree that Corcino/Heisey oughta be enough to obtain him.
But if I'm Walt, I'm asking Choo's agent behind the scenes what it would take to lock him up a few years.
I'd rather have Choo than Ludwick, frankly, because of age, and because Choo can do so many other things.
