Re: Would you sign Choo if given a chance
That the Mets are thinking about signing him should give us pause. I think it depends on Hamilton and maybe even on Henry Rodriguez. If you think Hamilton is your CF for next year and beyond, then Choo has to play left (unless you trade Bruce, perhaps not an unthinkable move). But you're already paying Ludwick pretty substantially for next year. If HRod is ready to go, too, you've got a decent backup plan for LF: i.e. HRod to 3rd, at least part of the time, and Frazier to left if Ludwick goes down or underperforms. Hamilton and HRod will also give you the left-handed bats you need. Personally I hope this is what happens and that we save the money on Choo to tie up as much of the starting rotation as we can, because that's what has improved this team.
