What this reminds me of is when the Cubs shifted Kosuke Fukudome to center from right when they signed Milton Bradley for right. That was at times not pretty to watch but by the end of the season he was decent out there. I fully expect Choo to make some pretty bad plays in center during spring training and into the first part of the season. His speed will make up for inexperience in center, though, and his bat and the run scoring potential will more than make up for the defensive drop-off.
