We saw him this past Monday in Louisville (and we don't live anywhere near it!). He tore the place up against Columbus, going 4 for 5 with 2 steals on 2 attempts and some sweet D in CF. As with anything, have to look across the body of work but, based on that one game and paying attention online, I like what I see with his development at the plate.
Choo's looking like a rock star and making Jocketty look like a genius. Putting him 2nd with BH atop the order come summer or fall is an excellent 'problem' to have. But good to let Billy bake a bit more to boost confidence he'll be able to handle the big league pitching consistently enough.
