I am happy the Reds opted for a lower cost solution in Choo, but I'd obviously be happy to revisit this next offseason if Upton remains in Arizona (Texas has bowed out of the process as well). Upton will likely come cheaper than as he'll be a year closer to FA, so maybe something like Leake, one of Corcino/Cingrani and a reliever would do it.
