I'll take it. Not sure how much longer Choo is under contract, but it gives Billy Hamilton some time.

Not a bad deal.

I just worry when I see "What they will lose, defensively"

Choo is in a contract year.

I like the potential move. Although Choo has only played 83 innings in CF in his career, being in a small park will help. Also, he is a career .381 OBP guy. Instant upgrade to the weakest part of the Reds lineup.

.373 OBP - Choo
.277 OBP - Stubbs

as long as his D is not Dunn bad, this is a great trade

@johnfayman: I've been out of pocket all day. Just confirmation that the Gregorius and Stubbs trade for Choo is all but complete. #reds

Hey, for 10% better at getting on base, I guess the sacrifice in defensive ability is worth it...

Who do they have, that the Reds could use to make the team better, that isn't under some outrageous contract?

We get Choo, Indians get Gregorious, send him to AZ for Upton, get pitching back, send some and extra piece (as already reported) our way.

Im just hypothesizing here.
But AZ apparently loves Didi

IDK, if I would just trade off the "best SS prospect" (as I read) in a multi player deal for a guy that would likely be playing out of position and only gaining 10% in OBP??

Cozart is plenty good at SS and gives us enough time to draft/trade for another young one.
Didi is not the best SS prospect in all of baseball, but he is apparently the one AZ wants.
We get Choo, who gets OB as you put it 10% more than Stubbs. But in baseball, when you succeed on offense 30% of the time you are considered a very good player.
That 10% is huge. HUGE. It is only a stop gap for Hamilton in CF anyways.

Sunset, here is why you make that trade:

‏@johnfayman
Lead man scored 83 times (43 percent). Choo reaches 297 and scores 42 percent of the time, that's 128 runs from leadoff vs. 83.

Love it. Choo has speed and some pop. Instant upgrade at the lead off spot.

As for defense, he won't be as good as Stubbs, but he won't be Adam Dunn either.

He's definitely got a great arm. Check out the highlights.

This is definitely a win-now move, as Hamilton will be ready in 1-2 years, but Cozart is just fine at SS, so I'm fine w/ giving up Didi.

Meh. I don't like it. From what I've heard, it would be Stubbs and Gregorius for Choo. Choo has only played 10 games in CF in his entire career. Why? Because he lacks in speed. He has a good arm, and a good bat, but I'm not so stoked about this deal. And doesn't he only have one year left on his contract?

Hopefully the Reds know what they're doing here.

Well, he has some speed. He did steal 21 bases last year.

Oh, I'm not calling him slow by any means. That came out wrong. I guess I'm just comparing him to Stubbs a little too much.

Not a bad deal for us. I just hate giving up good prospects for rental players. We're in win now mode, so I can't complain.

Well, Stubbs is still around, but Gregorius is gone. The Reds get Shin Soo Choo and IF Jason Donald in a 3 team deal involving the Indians and Diamondbacks.

Doh, when I called it, I heard that Stubbs was still around. Hopefully this works out great!
