I know this is a mid summer discussion, but please allow me to go there anyway. This team as we all know has a huge hole in left field. There is a great chance that the Cleveland Indians will be out of the AL central race come trade deadline time. Shin Soo Choo has eluded to the point with the korean media that he wants out of cleveland and though he and the indians agreed on a one year deal it appears at this point that he wont be a long term indian. So the question is this.
What would you give up for a guy who is a all star type outfielder who is still only 28 (29 in July)? I'm a big believer in windows. You have certain windows where you can compete for it all. Choo is the missing part of this offense. I'd give a huge payback for choo, enough to make it well worth the indians time in doing a deal. Beyond that the indians are the ones behind the eightball as a long term deal with choo and scott boras is unlikely. If the Reds can do a deal, cordero' contact comes off the books and u have an extra what 13mill to sign choo to a long term contract and chapman. Slides over to closer. What do you all think?
