    I do doubt. Compare him to Choo. Sorry, he's not the best...even WITH Choo scuffling of late.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Choo really working his at-bat here, they said it's the longest of any batter against Wainwright this year.

    Another foul, Wainwright to make his 11th pitch against him.

    Great AB by Choo. Now up to 11 pitches

    He's very good with the bat (so far) but well behind in HR and RBI. If those were closer, it would be an interesting debate due to BP's big edge with the glove.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    And Choo manages a walk against a pitcher that so rarely issues them. It's first and second.

    Hell of a job by Choo
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    And Cozart grounds into a double play. Inning over.
