I can't believe I'm reading on this thread that he is a below average defender and that Gregorius is a better player.
This trade was a no-brainer for the Reds to make.
Reds now have Choo, Votto and Bruce hitting from the left side in the same lineup. Huge improvement, excellent trade.
JIM BOWDEN @JimBowdenESPNxm
Talked to two scouts who scouted Choo last year and both opined that Bruce would end up in CF and Choo in RF after Dusty evaluates them
I'm a bit surprised Walt was so vocal about it being a 1 year rental.He usually like to hold things close to the vest.
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
So Doug, (for the record) you're not happy with the trade?
