Re: Reds acquire Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald for Drew Stubbs and Didi Gregorious
Just going on record to say that I'm loving the Choo deal. I think Didi will be a fine player, but the Reds need top of the lineup OBP and they need it now. Choo provides that.
The real key to a deal like this, though, is player development. The Reds have turned their world around the last five plus years in drafting and developing talent - it's a resource that keeps on giving. When you have the player development success that the Reds have had, you're able to dangle quality depth out to other clubs and use it to grab a guy like Choo that can help win now.
Keep drafting well, keep developing guys, and keep on winning ballgames.
