    I would love to see the Reds extend Choo. I think he could be our LF with Hamilton in CF and Bruce in RF. Move Ludwick to the bench.

    That, and it mitigates risk. In arbitration they pick one of the two numbers. There is no in between.

    Crunching numbers, they really only added a little over a million dollars for Choo.

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    ...And Drew Stubbs as well. I was just commenting on the effect it had on the payroll.

    We're basically paying Choo a little more than we were going to pay Stubbs. Walt is a magician with payroll.

    Losing Didi means we don't have an elite SS in AAA anymore, Cozart isn't going anywhere to open a spot anyway. Great trade.
