Slow Train a-Comin'?

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Pete Hornberger Danny Knobler is reporting that the Reds and Indians are in trade talks that would send OF Shin-Soo Choo and another player to the Reds in exchange for Didi Gregorius and Drew Stubbs. Unless this would precede another trade, the Reds would be making a sacrifice on defense up the middle for a major improvement on offense, as Choo is considered just okay in RF and has played a grand total of 10 career MLB games in CF. Choo (age 30) is in his final year of arbitration and will be eligible for free agency after 2013.

More on this as it develops.
