Re: Does anyone else think this would help
There really isn't any viable answer to this. Once Ludwick went down, the obvious course of action was to let Choo play a corner spot and give CF to more capable defenders, but I guess there's some patented Dusty stubbornness getting in the way. It's quite apparent to everyone in baseball that Choo is a weak CF, and considering that he's walking at the end of the year, it doesn't behoove us any to get him to "learn" it (even if by some mall miracle we do sign him, he'd likely be shifting to LF anyway to make room for Hamilton, unless they hold him off another season).
Any game played in an AL park should feature Choo at DH, does anyone doubt that?
