Consider: Since 2008, Choo ranks third with a 137 OPS+ among major leaguers with at least 600 games played in the outfield, according to research through Baseball-Reference.com. The only players ahead of him are Ryan Braun and Matt Holliday, each of whom has a contract worth more than $100 million.
Look at Carl Crawford(7 yrs/$142M) or Jayson Werth(7 yrs/$126M) in recent years.
I am willing to bet someone will pay him that, he is making almost 8 million now, if his numbers stay anywhere close to what they are now teams will sign him for that amount without blinking...
