Taking stock of the Shin-Soo Choo market
Given all that we know about Choo's usual suspects and what they must do in order to position themselves to sign him, is it the Rangers who have both the clearest need (Michael Choice in left?) and the fewest impediments? Texas also boasts a front office that's canny enough to recognize how valuable a player like Choo is. The not-privy-to-anything guess here is that the Rangers are the team best positioned to ink the best player left on the market.
Walt on Choo - ‘i think we have to move on’
Asking $22M/per according to Ft Worth newspaper. I don't blame Walt at all.
I wonder what Cruz would cost?
Translation -- Choo is all about the $, folks. The Reds never stood a chance.Quote:

Scott Boras calls Shin-Soo Choo a rare talent, says he doesn't necessarily need to sign with a 2014 contender AUDIO: http://bit.ly/J71unJ

Now Boras is reduced to throwing out absurd numbers and pretending Choo could sign anywhere in the hopes it shakes one organization free of its senses.
It's silly to expect a player not to maximize his own personal value when he has an opportunity to do so. This "He's all about the $" stuff is just ignorant, IMO.
At what point is enough $$ enough?
