B) I wouldn't sign Choo for five years. Three strikes me as the right length of deal for him, maybe with an option for a 4th year.
C) Arroyo's contract comes off the books after this season, so the Reds will have money to play with.
D) Hamilton and Choo hitting 1-2 in the lineup would be kind of awesome.
But remember the Reds have A LOT of players that will be 1st/2nd time arbitration after this season.
