    Choo is pending arb and is going to be paid well in this last year.
    Historically, corner OF in the last year of their contract just don't command a starter like Leake, a solid pitching prospect like Cingrani, Hiesey, and a PTBL.

    Look at what St louis gave up for one year of Holliday a couple years ago


    Holliday > Choo and the Cardinals gave up much less for one year of him


    I guess I see pitchers like Leake more scarce than acceptable OFers.. Although I do admit that Choo is an elite OF.
    Holliday was traded to the Cards in July 2009. He was traded as a two month rental. Yet the A's got Brett Wallace, the best offensive player in the Cards system at the time in return.

    In 2012 the Reds failed to score 700 runs for the first time in a decade. The team's lead off hitters hit .208/.254/.327. The team's OPS v. righty pitching was .710, below league average of .720.

    Choo is perfect to help fix these problems and I, for one, would sacrifice Mike Leake and more to get him.

    This is all hypothetical, I doubt the Reds will go for Choo. Probably they'll sign Ludwick and get a Coco Crisp type for CF. That would be fine with me.
