    Choo definitely is 'situational' in reality, but that is not how a GM is going to view him. If we haven't learned anything by now, we should know that GM's don't look at contract/player value the way we do. Everyone gets more than they are supposed to get...from the great players like Pujols to the **** players like Ty Wiggington.

    Choo: 5 Years 12.5 Per. (no...he will not get 15 per.)
    Cano: He's going to retire a Yankee. They'll give him 19 mill a year for the next 8 years. He's not a Pujols in terms of skill and not Jeter in terms of allure so he wont be ridiculously overpaid.
    Ellsbury: 6 years at 14.5 per.

    Are you high?

    Andre Ethier(122ops+, .643ops vs L)= 6 yrs/$95.95M & $17.5M vesting option

    Ryan Howard(134ops+, .728ops vs L)= 5 yrs/$125M & $23M team option

    Shin-Soo Choo(132ops+, .672ops vs L)= minimum of 5 yrs/$85M, maximum of 7yrs/$133

    Ellsbury: 6 years at 14.5 per.
    Choo: There is no way he will get contract under 15 per. He has been offensively superior to even Cano in his career and his agent is Boras.
    Cano: No way he will get contract under 20 million a year
    Ellsbury: His agent is also Boras. Even if it's not, that doesn't make sense at all.

    I think that many people in Redszone underrate the talent of Choo as a player.

    In 2012, Reds ended the season with 12th in OBP, and 9th in Run.
    In 2013, Reds rank 3rd in OBP, 4th in Run so far, largely thanks to Choo.

    The fact that Choo is a high OBP guy alone guarantees the jackpot because nowadays the majority of GM and FO have OBP-centric mind.

    High OBP is exactly what you want from a lead off hitter. It'd be nice if the Reds could find a proper CF and slide Choo into a corner so that Choo's defense isn't such a liability.
