JinAZ has a great idea about how the Reds could fill the brand new hole at first base: Hee Seop Choi. He says:
I doubt there are many who would disagree, but I’d take Choi any day over Hatteberg. Maybe we’ll get a shot at him. He’d be a brilliant waivers pickup given our new hole at 1B. And if not waivers, maybe he’d come cheap in a trade. LA certainly doesn’t seem to value the guy.
I think it’s a wonderful idea, and he’d likely come very cheap. This guy has all the makings of a solid hitter — at a good price. Unfortunately, I get the feeling that he’s about to get the Roberto Petagine treatment from major league teams.
