I can't remember a single instance in which Choo's defense had a decisive effect on a game except for the one against Cards in early April or cost us a game.
Tells you how useful UZR is. Choo's been adequate, far from terrible. Like you said, the game against the Cards early on is the only one I can point to and say "He cost us a game." Not bad for a guy who is playing out of position.
