    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    Wow, throw out Choo's injury-riddled 2010 where he only played 85 games, and he has averaged an .860 OPS and 150 games played per season the last 3 years. That may just help this Reds lineup...
    Go BLUE!!!

    Well, his family is Asian (or at least his dad's side of the family is), but he was born and raised in Panama.

    A better hitter based on what? He looks like a high 600 OPS bat.

    Re: Shin-soo Choo?

    If Didi has a better arm than Janish, I'm looking forward to watching him play a bit more. I've only seen him twice and I thought he was decent. A solid SS prospect, but I apparently didn't see him at the right time I guess.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    I don't know what Gregorius projects to be exactly, but saying he's a better hitter than Janish isn't exactly hard to believe

    Well, Cleveland has more SS than they need already. No reason for them to acquire another one. Meanwhile, they've been working hard at a deal with Arizona, presumably for Trevor Bauer. The D'Backs have a ton of SP and presumably want to deal some of it to land a SS if they can't get one via an Upton trade.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    You can steal Paul Janish's lunch money with a .600 OPS.

    Based on his tools. Janish at the same age was playing a full season in Dayton. Gregorius hit .267 between AA, AAA and the Majors this year. Gregorius isn't some superstar at the plate. He projects to be a .275-.280/.330/.400 type of hitter. At shortstop, with outstanding defense.... yeah, Paul Janish can't touch that.

    That's why I called him a glorified Janish, but a 600 OPS, better or not, still isn't something to get all fired up about.

    Saying "He hits better than Paul Janish" is like telling a girl she has a great personality.

    Of course not, but there is a big difference between a .600 OPS and the guy Gregorius projects to become.

    Definitely, but even if its better, it's still not worth getting excited about.

    Glorified Janish may not have accurately portrayed what I meant, more like a rich man's Janish, or really just a defensive specialist to put it simply.
