Thanks for having me back!
I have not heard this yet (or so I think), but with Choo only here for one year, and with his ability to crush right-handed pitching, but not so much lefties, whether there might develop a straight platoon with Choo in center with Heisey? This could mitigate some of the defensive liabilities while maybe offering more of a punch than just Choo everyday.
Boras would be pissed, but what do we owe Choo but a championship?
I don't believe we will see a straight platoon, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Choo as the DH in every interleague road game with Heisey in CF and Heisey in CF for about 10-20 more games with Bailey and Arroyo on the mound as the fly ball pitchers on the staff.
