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.
What if we don't win the World Series, but Didi and Stubbs play more at their average than at their peak? Seems like you're making some large assumptions about their future.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
