Ya. I don't think Choo is going to be a credible defensive CFer.
Instead of hearing how defense doesn't matter in left, we'll get to hear how defensive metrics are *insert perjorative language*.
I think Choo as a CFer is a good bet to be a 3.5-4 WAR player which means adding him makes the Reds better in a meaningful way concerning playoof and WS chances. But the leather side probably isn't going to be pretty.
