Re: Reds in deep talks for Shin-soo Choo
So play offense for the first 6 or 7 innings. Get the lead, then pull Ludwick, move Choo to left, and insert Heisey in the outfield to help protect the lead.
Between late inning substitutions and periodic days off for Ludwick, Choo wouldn't spend all year in center. Regardless, of weakening the outfield defenst you have to do this for the upgrade at leadoff and especially after the Nats went out and got Span. Have to improve the offense to keep up with Nats and Dodgers next year!
If this really happens I like our chances with Chapman to the rotation, full year of Frazier at 3b, full year of Votto, a top tier leadoff man. Suddenly a 97 win team just got better starting pitching and a better offense!
