    Cubs expected to pursue CHOO..

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/0...edium=facebook

    If we make a qualifying offer, how does this effect his market value..

    A lot of variables in this as it's one of the first times a top player is available during free agency, and what the cost of loosing a first round pick will do to his market value?

    If you ask me it's bad move for the Cubs. They are still a few years away.

    That would suck since the Cubs will have a protected pick. And since Choo would be a Cub.

    They are only 3 games below a non-protected pick, so that ship hasn't sailed yet.

    The Cubs have the farm system to make moves if they want to.

    I would think that the Ms would be all over Choo (and any other outfielder with a pulse) this off season.

    I predict the Mariners sign Ellsbury. He is from the area, the Red Sox will make him a qualifying offer, and Boras will be looking for team most willing to over pay for his client.

    You're absolutely right. They'll target any good outfielder. I wouldn't be shocked if they don't go after Cano too.

    Does Choo not like winning?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    The Ms could easily be an above .500 team next season with a couple of shrewd FA pickups and the promotion of their arms to the major league rotation. The Cubs? I'm not sure how far away they are.

    I see the Cubs being closer to contention than Mariners or at least just as close. Better run differential this season and better pitching overall it seems. Wouldn't surprise at all for Cubs to arrive a little earlier than expected.

    Like most, he probably likes $$ more. I love what Choo has done for the Reds, but I don't think the Reds ever expected him to come back next year. He was a stop gap until Hamilton gets here in 2014. But, I think he's been even better than expected.

    No guarantee that the Reds will keep winning or that the Cubs won't start winning.

    I bet they said the same thing in the 1920's....


    And the Cubs never truly win, just the other team they're playing happened to lose

    Well, that's not a good news for Reds. Choo was a Reds killer when he was an indian in the past.

    Below is Choo's batting line vs Reds.

    Code:

    Bronson Arroyo     15 14  8  3  0  4   7  1  0 .571 .600 1.643 2.243
    Homer Bailey       11  8  3  0  1  0   0  3  2 .375 .545  .625 1.170

    Sam LeCure          5  2  0  0  0  0   0  3  0 .000 .600  .000  .600

    Aroldis Chapman     2  2  1  0  0  0   0  0  0 .500 .500  .500 1.000
    J.J. Hoover         2  2  0  0  0  0   0  0  2 .000 .000  .000  .000
    Logan Ondrusek      1  1  0  0  0  0   0  0  0 .000 .000  .000  .000

    In case of Cubs signing Choo, it would be a good idea not to re-sign Arroyo.
    If we sign Arroyo, he should not start against the Cubs.
