Shin-Soo-Choo

February 27, 2013
By

Choo was obtained from the Cleveland Indians in a 3-team trade with Arizona and Cincinnati. The Reds obtained the 30-year old lefthanded hitting outfielder and the Indians wound up with Drew Stubbs and a young infielder named Gregorious. Arizona gets a pitcher from Cleveland named Trevor Bauer. The Reds were desperate to trade the light-hitting Stubbs and replace him with a better hitting lead off man. Choo will give them that. The native of South Korea comes to the Reds with the reputation of hitting with power to the opposite field. He hit more homers than Stubbs and was a much higher batting average player than Stubbs as well. The real problem, he has a high salary and will be a free agent at the end of the season. The Reds will put him in center, let him lead off this year, and hope Billy Hamilton is ready for 2014. This is a big gamble but the Reds want to win now and Shin-Soo-Choo gives them that possibility. The loss of Gregorious will not be known until a couple years down the road. The Reds definitely want to win this year!
