La$tly... b/c money i$ not everything (check out the 7 deadly $in$ thing)? The life$tyle difference between $10 mill and $13 mill per year i$ null. Playing with people you like and for a good/playoff team i$ pretty cool and might be worth $omething. $hould I go on?
No one is griping...that's the point. Choo went from right to center without complaining about it...simply did what they asked him to do. I appreciate that, regardless of where he signs or for how much.
About the money...the thing is, neither you or I gets to determine how much is too much for someone else. Would I like it if he signed in Cincy for less than he could make elsewhere...absolutley! But that's not going to keep me from saying 'thanks' for a great season with the Reds while he was here.
