Re: Bruce or Choo in CF?
It won't matter much who's out there, IMO.
It is, at this point, what it's going to be. They'll likely have a poor CF defensively who will make up for that with offensive numbers. No matter who's out there, the difference between that person and the Drew Stubbs we saw in 2012 looks to be a pretty massive improvement. Neither Choo nor Bruce are going to be more than 20 runs below replacement (as it's almost impossible to be that bad with decent defenders to both sides of you-- which either CF would have-- and the few outs hit to you per game). Add on three pitchers who profile as ground ball guys (Cueto as an extreme example of that) on the starting staff, and you have to figure that it doesn't mean all that much in the overall scheme of things one way or another.
Tilting at windmills, and all that.
