I simply question this:
Is one year of Choo, playing out of position, worth a projected 15-year career of an above Avg. SS and a "toolsy" outfielder that was a 6 win player in 2010-11?
Hang a WS Championship banner in 2013? Yes it's worth it. Anything less, it's probably not worth it at all.
I don't see it as a 3 team trade, as Cleveland made 2 separate trades (The Reds/D-Backs didn't make any trade.) If you break it down that way, Cleveland pretty much fleeced the D-backs, and the Reds/Indians made a rather even trade (although I'd say the Reds got the best player out of it, even though it's only for one year)

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
