That's an amazing statement."

    There are varying levels of 'above average' though. Valuable, yes. How valuable... that's the part that's debatable. Some see him as a utility player based on scouting reports, so there is some generosity in even calling him above average.

    I like Bauer, but the Reds don't need him. They need Choo.

    Better hope they are not a future Cy Young Award winner.

    Agree BUT then they could trade some of their pitching excess (Leake, Corcino, Cingrani) for Fowler or Upton. Oh well, I'm still quite happy with Choo.
    Go BLUE!!!

    No! Not Juan Additional?!? I had high hopes for him.
    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

    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    Seems like everytime we make a deal with Cleveland it works out in our favor. I am all on board...

    Graves and parts for Smiley
    Casey for Burba
    Phillips for Stevens
    Choo for Stubbs and DiDi

    all in recent memory... Who else?
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Sure. And some see him as a second division starter, which pans out as above-average in most cases. He is a prospect for a reason. We aren't entirely sure what he is yet. But if he is going to be a league average bat, he is going to be a 3.5-4 win player.
