And if you look at the Reds, they sorely need that talent. Team is painfully slow this season and it is the major cause of all these aggressive baserunning plays that fail.
Hamilton will be the CF next year, if not out of the box, then as soon as he has a decent streak at AAA. The Reds will have another CFer, or will try Heisey there, but Hamilton is coming to Cincy. They aren't investing in a three year CFer in the market.
At most, the Reds will get a guy (maybe Choo himself) slated for LF. More likely, just a one-year CFer who can share the position with Hamilton when BH is called up.
As for the offense generally, the Reds will obviously have to make some other changes. 3B, SS, one catching spot, all are fair game for more offense.
