Re: Who will get Choo?
If Bowden is correct and Choo gets around $85 million over five years, the Reds would probably pay that much.
They would have to rid themselves of one big contract, probably Phillips. But $17 per year for five years for Choo would probably be feasible.
I'm guessing that's the limit though. Guessing that's the lowest Choo would take and the highest the Reds would pay.
Choo remains an ideal signing since the Reds don't lose a draft pick and since he can play CF now and move over to left for BH.
Only issue with Choo is that it still leaves the Reds without the big righty slugger. Maybe Ludwick manages for one more year, if healthy, and Reds try to get the righty bat next off-season.
