Re: Cubs expected to pursue CHOO..
I don't see how Walt can open up meaningful money via trade unless it is Phillips or Votto. He could open up salary for next year, but Choo is going to command a long-term deal.

Without Choo, Reds will have to add a short-term CFer. Even if Hamilton makes the ballclub, they can't depend on his bat every day as a rookie.
Without Choo, Reds will also have to consider other changes in their offense. They can't expect an acceptable offense with the current team minus Choo without considering some changes.
