    Thank you Mr. Choo!!!!!!!

    Thanks for coming here and showing us what we have been missing in the leadoff spot for the last two decades or more. Thanks for switching positions in the OF and doing so quietly and effieciently. Thanks for helping us make the playoffs again despite many players going down to injury throughout the year which hadnt happened in the last 3-4 years. Thanks for ALL that you have done on the field for us the Reds Fans. WE APPRECIATE YOU AND DESPERATELY WANT YOU BACK IN A REDS UNIFORM IN 2014!!!!!!!!

    Re: Thank you Mr. Choo!!!!!!!

    Choo has been publishing his "weekly diary" to a Korean sports news agency and from what he has written, it's quite obvious that this past season with the Reds has been a very meaningful season in terms of his personal life.

    This is his last entry, immediately after the loss. He specifies that he wanted to write a letter to the people that influenced him the most this season. Translated by me to best convey the personal tone of his entry.

    ---------------------------------------------


    First, for Dusty Baker.

    Dusty, you know what it is that I want to tell you. You came up to me at the clubhouse the day after our loss. Seeing how down I felt because of our loss, you said to me: "This is life." I will never forget that moment.

    Throughout this season, you saw that I was living away from my family, and you constantly looked out for my needs -- food to eat and warm words of life wisdoms, especially during my struggles. Even during the team lows, instead of criticizing me, you restored my confidence by showing me your faith and support. Your support was moving on a personal level. Without doubt, you were best leader that I've played for.

    Next, Jay Bruce!

    You were absolutely the best teammate. You always tried to see things from my perspective first, and during my deepest struggles on the field, you constantly encouraged me by instilling self-confidence. We learned a lot from each other. I probably learned a lot more from you than vise versa. Jay! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Cincinnati's secret weapon, Billy Hamilton!

    You absolutely wowed us with your speed from the get go. Billy, there is something I want to tell you. I want you to play the game as if the home stadium is your home. Don't worry about what others think -- you have natural talent. I want to see that talent come to fruition. I wish you luck.

    Last but not least, the fans of Cincinnati!

    From this past season, I experienced moments that I wouldn't trade for anything in this world. Recently while I was on the field, I heard a fan say "Choo, we love you. We want you to stay for next season." While I honestly can't say at this moment where I'll be next year, I want to let you know that the fans of Cincinnati are special and I will remember this season with fond memories.

    Can I get an amen?

    Didn't everyone else learn about Korea when they learned Choo was Cincy bound?

    Re: Thank you Mr. Choo!!!!!!!

    Choo came here b/c he was traded here. Just to make sure no one thinks he came here out of free angency or out of the goodness of his heart.

    I will give him a big thank you if he re-signs for less than he can get elsewhere.

    Really? So you think that just because he is getting paid to be here he isn't a valuable asset and doesn't deserve some appreciation? I bet you appreciate a thank you from your boss/ significant other/ whatnot when you do something of value (even if you're expected to do it).

    Thank you, Choo for a great year. Hopefully you stay here (for a reasonable price), but if not, I wish you good luck in the future (unless you're picked up by St. Louis of course).
    Reds record for games attended in 2014: 11-3

    Most memorable game attended this season:
    Cueto out-pitching Dickey with a 19 pitch/3 strikeout 9th inning by Chapman

    No, but I think your ability to read between the lines is lacking. I will also tell you that no one in this thread is Choo's boss lol. I like Choo and he served a vital role on this 3rd place team. Before we get too overwhelmed with Choo-luv (and speaking of 3rd), I think of him right after I give praise to the starting pitching and Joey Votto.

    Right now they may be a third place team, BUT they are going to end up with a record not much worse than most of the division winners in all of MLB, and that's with playing in the toughest division in all of baseball. That's an accomplishment.

    Boo

    Regardless of why/how he's a Red, he's done a great job, did what he was asked to do...without griping about it.

    Why would he resign with the Reds for less than he can get elsewhere?
