Although I see nothing wrong with Choo's comments as translated, I'm sure there are nuances lost in translation.
He very may well have said something like "I'll bust my butt in spring training, I'll give it all I've got, and the only way I'll quit is if they yank me."
Choo has a reputation of being a gamer, so I think it's premature to question his attituted based on a few translated quotes.
