Re: Who will get Choo?
Today's press seems to say that the Yankees are more interested in Beltran. But Beltran may already be talking to Texas. So maybe Choo to the Yanks isn't so clear.
The Reds are really in a box. If they sign Choo, they apparently have to trade to open the salary room. And they will be limiting payflex for years to come with another huge LT contract, for Choo.
If they don't sign Choo, the already iffy offense gets worse unless the Reds add another major bat -- who will also cost.
And if they do make trades to open the door to Choo, the Reds may wind up depleting the pitching which can really hurt the team.
Probably most likely is that they don't sign Choo and try to replace him with several moderate cost players at various positions, but will those guys really replace such a terrific bat? Tough situation.
