    I've seen some smart people predict Pence would get more than Choo.

    Not that he is better, but the market values his skills more.

    I've thought Choo would get 90 for 6 but Pence's deal probably means it'll be more like 6 for 105.

    6 million dollars for 105 years?! That would set all kinds of records.

    No, but I might be able to come up with it in 105 years of work.

    Boras won't accept less than $90MM for Choo now.

    The Pence deal is just Sabean bidding against himself again. Terrible signing. The only way it helps Choo is by taking another corner guy off the market. He was likely getting $90MM either way.

    Was Dave Cameron sober? I like his work, but that's BJ Upton Money.

    I'll guess Yankees. 4 years, $100 million

    Pence didn't cost the Giants a draft pick. Huge difference that can't be overestimated.

    Maybe then the Reds will focus on putting together a real championship caliber offense.

    They may be forced to make changes if Choo leaves that they otherwise might not make.

    Still, would rather Choo stays, terrific player.
    yup -- even though he has at times looked helpless against lefties (.217 BA) he has managed a .349 OBP with them --- I think he'd look great in LF in Cincy but if the same RH bats are in the line up .....

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Resigning Choo doesn't seem to be important if they are simply not going to find a righty clean-up hitter, nor does much else, this lineup has needed one for years, even if that means signing 2-3 Ludwick types like the Cards have done. Can't have your 3B shooting blanks for 4 months, along with your SS and LF'er, every night, you are also seeing 2 worn-out 30-something players in BP and Votto who are showing signs of cracking under the daily pressure or are simply not being pitched to anymore.

    Target an elite hitter or one in decline for a couple of years, and improve your depth, just don't see the need for Choo if he's not being driven-in enough at that cost - if you can do both, awesome, but it won't happen I suppose.
