If he's going to be playing CF in October, I'd rather get the mistakes out of the way now and have him as comfortable as humanly possible.
This. Let's not take our eyes off the prize, gentlemen. I know we have to make the playoffs before we can win the World Series, but I still think keeping with the master plan is the best way to go at this point. Choo will be fine in CF in time. Then either Ludwick will come back healthy, or if he doesn't, Walt will work some trade magic to fill the void in LF. This team is built to win it all and we need Choo to be the CF in October.
