Choo is clearly a terrific hitter, but I think the defense needs to be heavily scrutinized to determine if this is going to be the upgrade it appears on paper.
Where are these questions about Choo's defense coming from? I've seen him numerous times and he's quite good out there. His arm is fantastic as well. He's got solid range too. Is there some defensive metric that's showing him as a crummy defender or something?
