Shin-Soo Choo makes the Reds lineup look pretty. No more will they have to search for a lead-off hitter with a solid OBP. I do feel bad for the guy in charge of explaining to Dusty why Choo's OBP should be coveted and they shouldn't mourn the loss of Stubbs. "Oh bee pees are fine and dandy...If you're a dandy. I play a man's game where hitters swing the bat like they mean it. You ever see George Foster take a walk? He would have preferred someone walk on his face. Hence... His face!" "But, Dusty, if Choo gets on base--" "I get on base by swinging!" "Choo not you." "How about 'Choo' stop confusing me?!" Hitter-wise, this is about as good a fit as I've seen from a fantasy and real baseball perspective this offseason. (Pitching-wise, I did like Greinke going to the Dodgers.) I've never been excited about Choo (no offense), but never fully against him either. Indifferent, if you're not trying to use unnecessary words, which is the least succinct way to say succinct. This slight tick up in value for Choo has me excited. It's a small sample size, but he has four homers in nine games in Great American. So, for 2013, I'll give him 67 homers? Nope, but a terrific lineup and ballpark sure won't hurt. For 2013, I'll give him the line 108/23/79/.296/20. Anyway, here's some more offseason moves for 2013 fantasy baseball:The post Choo On This Big Red Trade appeared first on Fantasy Baseball Blog at Razzball.com.
