    On WLW when they announced the move, they said the Reds WOLUD lose the 1st if they resigned. I hadn't heard that before, and those guys aren't always right, but that is what was said.

    That opposes everything I understood about the process. Can another poster tell me if I am wrong/crazy?

    WLW is wrong.
    If the Reds resign Choo, no impact on the draft.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    You are correct about the process. The whole intent is to help "competitive balance" by compensating teams who are losing free agents, because they simply can't afford them, with draft picks.

    It has already been stated NUMEROUS times over the past two seasons, they have produced very similar numbers. the real difference is salary. that's it. Basically all the reds get by going after Sandoval is a larger payroll, diminished talent base and uncertainty past 2014.

    That's the kind of move teams like the Mets make.

    Ok so you want an upgrade at 3B. Is there one really available? Because Sandoval is not an upgrade. He's worse defensively, that's a fact, and in a park that suppresses HR's but is pretty nice for doubles and triples, he had fewer doubles and triples than the guy playing in a park that suppresses them. Basically you are enamored of his power potential, and I see his weight as something that has sapped that power.

    Hmm...Pablo has lost 42 lbs already....

    Good for him, but hasn't he done this before, only to regain the weight?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Did you read the part where Pablo stated he has not mentioned how much weight he has lost? 42 is a non confirmed number.

    He's lost weight. great. He'll struggle with it his entire career. He's a poor defender and a marginal offensive upgrade at best. He's also expensive.

    And there is no way the Reds would ever target him in a trade. Thank god.

    There is speculation that Choo will be DL'd tomorrow or the next day as Jim Adduci and Nick Martinez are activated. Choo's slash is at a season low: .236/.354/.367

    On May 22 he was a .310/.436/.503 hitter in 181 plate appearances.
    From May 23 through last night: .178/.285/.259 (214 PA)

    He's been in the DH spot more and more as time has gone on but it hasn't helped. It's probably time for him to take a rest and see if it heals up

    Re: Choo

    I got no sympy for Texas, but I don't like to see Choo play so poorly as he's a good guy and even indicated the contract has weighed on him mentally. Hope he turns it around.

    Now junkhead on the other hand, I'll make jokes about him till the end of time.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Choo

    I still think Hamilton needs another year in AAA and that we should have stuck with Choo for another year.

Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    More like what is he consuming haha

    In seriousness, not sure how anyone can conclude he needs to be in AAA. He's an above average offensive player, statistically, and is on pace for nearly 6 WAR. He absolutely has proven he belongs on this level.

    Re: Choo

    Hamilton has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt he belongs in the big leagues. It's looking more and more like the Reds made the right decison about Choo. He has had an injury riddled season to this point. He may still have a couple more good seasons in him but we are far better off with Hamilton than paying that huge salary to Choo and him likely ot be on the DL more and more the older he becomes.
