    Choo Likely Exempt From Military Service

    This is great news if you're a Choo fan.

    Shin-Soo Choo will likely be exempt from military service since he helped South Korea beat Taiwan for gold at the Asian games yesterday, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (on Twitter).

    I don't think it would make any sense for the Indians to deal Shin-Soo Choo at this point in time. Although they were an absolute disaster this year, they may only be a year or two away from being a great team if things go reasonably well.

    Reds fans everywhere rejoice upon hearing the news for reasons that are not immediately apparent.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S.

    Yes, I agree. The Indians might listen to offers, but it's going to take more than Malony to get it done.

    I question whether even Leake or Volquez would be enough. It would certainly cost us quite a bit to pry Choo loose.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Good to hear, I'm a fan of the guy.
    "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."

    Indians were due for a break.

    A very awesome guy also. I have a step mother who is Korean, so I know a little Korean, and was able to talk to the guy for a few minuets before the Sunday Game at GABP this year. A really funny, caring guy who gave the whole family autographs. glad to see him not have to worry about military service.

    Hmmm, Grady Sizemore is conspicuously absent from that lineup. I think the Reds have some young pieces like, Juan Francisco (DH), Chris Heisey (versatile OF), Chris Valaika (IF), Mike Leake (or) Matt Maloney (SP), Jordan Smith (RP) (among others), who might be of interest to the Tribe to speed up that building process. I like Grady.

    Grady - Stubbs - Bruce

    Greatest OF defense of all-time?

    Hang on to Heisey and you still have he (or maybe Frazier) and Gomes to go against tough lefties. Bring back Nix (or maybe Edmonds or even Dorn) and you can slide Sizemore over to CF for really tough righties. I like the thought of sending a core lineup of Votto, Bruce, Sizemore, Edmonds up against guys like Halladay, Wainwiright, Carpenter, etc.
