I don't know if that makes sense at all. Do you understand?
I think it was a mistake to sign Ludwick and bring in Choo. I don't think they can afford both. Short of them being able to move Ludwick, we can't afford Choo too. We have too many other priorities. LF is way down the list from starting rotation, closer, Votto, Phillips, etc. You gotta cut somewhere. I think we need someone like Lutz to take over LF eventually. This team needs some significant contributions from pre arbitration eligible players like we've gotten in the past from Cozart, Frazier, and others.
