Shin-Soo Choo exempt from South Korean military service
This is great news if you're a Choo fan.
Shin-Soo Choo will likely be exempt from military service since he helped South Korea beat Taiwan for gold at the Asian games yesterday, according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (on Twitter).
I was pushing to trade for him back in July. He is the perfect leadoff hitter for this club. Plus, he played RF for the Indians, which says he has a good arm. I remember him throwing one of our runners out at home in a game this season. Stick him in LF and make him the leadoff hitter. Get it done Walt. This is a key piece for this lineup. I'd trade Heisey, Alonso and one of our starting young pitchers for this guy. It would improve the club alot.
