Re: Reds acquire Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald for Drew Stubbs and Didi Gregorious
I just saw this trade this morning. I had it in an e-mail from Reds.com. What a great e-mail to see this early in the morning! This is a great trade for the Reds. He addresses the biggest need the Reds had. A leadoff hitter. It may diminish the defense in CF but the tradeoff in hitting should offset that. Also gives Dusty some options with platooning some with Choo and Ludwick if needed. The best part is the Reds didn't have to give up any pitching to get him. That's just amazing IMO. You never know how deals will eventually work out but at first look on this one Jocketty knocked one out of the park. I can't wait for opening day now!
