Isn't that a slightly skewed way of looking at things? In a very basic way of looking at this, those 26 hits would be spread out over 9 batting slots and those 81 OPS points would be as well. Which would likely add 9ish pts of opponent OPS to the Reds staff.
Now take into account that Choo will likely not play a full season's worth of CF and maybe it isn't as bad as it seems.
