Bruce was a homegrown talent at a younger age with an agent not named Scott Boras.
This is going to be Choo's last big payday of his career. he would be crazy not to hit the open market and attempt to get as big of a contract as possible. It is the same exact thing every one of us would do. I have been a huge Reds fan my entire life and if I were in Choo's shoes I would hit free agency and sign to the highest bidder even if it were the Cardinals or Cubs.
