I can make arguments for and against making the decision in June...I'd be more comfortable with a July decision.
Because this team won 90+ games with Stubbs in CF and with Choo the Reds have only won about 20+, he doesn't see Choo as being that important to the team overall, especially with what he feels it would cost to keep him.
