Asian television is just better than Western television.
It just is.
"But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
My heart stopped when I read somewhere (Red Reporter?) that the trade included Homer. I'm thrilled that Walt made the trade. Kind of deal he made in StL. No more do we trade for junk. Solid move.
Not a fan of the trade. Not near as confident in Cozart as a long term solution at SS that most on here are. Have my doubts about Fraizer at 3B as well.
I'll have to "Choo" on this one for awhile.
"I got all of it ... I crushed that ball ... and it BARELY cleared the outfield wall. I settled into my home run trot ... then I realized I didn't even have a home run trot." - Bob Uecker
LinkTowers said Gregorius reminds him "of a young Derek Jeter."

Choo will get a raise in arb to 7-8 mil. The Reds supposedly got 3.5 mil from the Indians to cover the difference between Stubbs and Choo's salaries.
A major hole filled without dealing away one piece of our surplus of starting pitching.
This is Freaking A Awesome!
FWIW, judging by D-Back message board responses, they (D-Back fans) are not happy about dealing away Bauer for Gregorius, as they're not convinced that Gregorius will hit at the MLB level.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
I logged into check my email and see "Reds acquire..." and I was about to yawn and delete it until I saw the name involved. WOW.
Last offseason we got Latos, Marshall, and Madson. This offseason is off to a pretty good start as well.
How about Mike Leake to the Red Sox for Bryce Brentz (I'd even toss in Ondrusek)?
I like Gregorius. But I'm not convinced he'll hit at the big-league level either- at least not for another season or two.
