Any chance at trading for Choo?
The Indians are only 4.5 out of the division lead right now, but they are 11th out of 14 teams in the AL. Playoff odds at 9.6%, a few more losses this week and they could become sellers.
As a batter Choo is perfect for us: left hander .380+ career OBP, lead off hitter, decent speed. He has one year left after this which will be slightly expensive $10 mil?, then free agency. The biggest drawback, could either Choo or Bruce play adequate center? He may be one guy worth putting some serious prospects down for if either could be a CF.
