Range was a problem for Choo last year, but prior to that it was never an issue. Before last season, he and Bruce were almost twins defensively. I guess you could say that 2012 portends a serious downgrade for Choo defensively, but to me it looks like an outlier. I'm willing to bet on a return to his career norms rather than 2012 being the new norm. Apparently, so is Walt.
