    WTF that'd be unreal. My only question would be why? Could Walt be working a 3-team trade to deal Cabrera to AZ for Upton?

    Holy crap.

    I'm having flashbacks to the proposed deals with the O's for Bedard a few years back. LOL.

    I've got to stop refreshing the screen. My kids need dinner.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I'm hoping for a 3 team deal where we end up with Choo and Bauer

    Choo is clearly a terrific hitter, but I think the defense needs to be heavily scrutinized to determine if this is going to be the upgrade it appears on paper.
    I see Choo only playing about 100 games in CF this year- max.

    I see Heisey playing at least 50 (with Choo in LF). And I see Hamilton looming as a threat to steal innings as well (pun intended).

    So really what this does is gives us a LOT of breathing room for our risk factors:
    1) Ludwick cannot maintain last year's offense
    2) Choo's CF defense gives back a lot of value
    3) Billy Hamilton is or isn't ready to be a fulltime CF
    4) Injury risk for any of the above
    5) In status quo, lack of leadoff hitter/offensive CF will be a huge detriment

    In almost all of these "risk" scenarios, we're pretty well covered. That's why I'm very much in favor of this move.
    Go BLUE!!!

    This could be getting back to the Wily Mo Wishful thinking, but is it possible that for the types of players the Reds have been targeting, a guy may be no worse as a CF than he is as a corner OF.

    I'm thinking the best comparison is in a 2b and a 3B. The skills don't always translate neatly from one position to another. A guy like Rolen can be a good 3b without being a good 2b, because he has quick reaction speed, but not the speed to cover as much ground as a 2b or a SS would.

    Similarly, an outfielder without great reaction time but with better overall speed would be slower in the corners, but could possibly be no worse as a CF.

    This seemed to hold true on utility players like Hairston, but it may not be as true with Choo.
