    I'm just saying, he's probably a slightly below average major league shortstop and projects to at least maintain that for a while. He's not perfect, but it feels great to say he's our weakest link now.

    That would really suck for Leake (for him) to start back in Triple-A.

    Absolutely. I fully expect to see Leake yo-yo'd up and down as needed this year to give Chapman all the rest he needs.
    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

    Yep, it'll be spring training- after competition, they're going to have leftover relievers to swap for other spare parts or AAA depth.

    What will you do without proposing a Justin Upton deal this season?

    and it's a great sign of the pitching depth this team has.

    In my lifetime, I can't recall a more exciting time to be a Reds fan than right now.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    #Dbacks Towers says Gregorious is one of "premier shortstops in baseball." "We think we're a better ballclub today and in the future..."

    Don't get me wrong. I think they are ready to go to war with a Bruce-Choo-Ludwick OF. But I think Walt will still sniff around to see if there is a way to get better.
    They're not paying $14 million to Ludwick to sit the bench, nor will they trade Leake for someone that would only be platooning in center a quarter of the time.

    Choo is their CF or Bruce will be if that doesn't work out.

    It's not like he hasn't had a chance to force a different decision.

    I'm blown away by Walt's ability to surprise by exceeding expectations. Feels good to be a Reds fan right now.

    This ain't signing Eric Milton just to say you've done something.

    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    I may be the only one, but I wouldn't mind seeing Walt deal a little of the "surplus" for a youngster with upside (and controlable years) - maybe a young 3B or corner OFer - a young starter or high-leverage bullpen arm might be nice too.

    Seriously. Choo was probably my second favorite target of the offseason. And we still made our blockbuster trade with Arizona


    So the Reds can win the WS with Choo in CF and Ludwick in LF this year, then trade Leake, Ludwick and a prospect for Upton in the offseason. Plug him at LF alongside Hamilton and Bruce, and go for the 3-peat!
    Go BLUE!!!

    Rosenthal also just said on Twitter that Indians are sending ~$3.5 million to the Reds to account for the difference between Choo and Stubbs' salaries. Wow.
