Re: Who plays CF in 2014?
I see them letting Choo walk but offering him a contract at a huge discount...I truly dont think they want him back. we have a few OF's in the minors who are really only 1-3 years away and Choo is going to demand a 5 year deal IMO.....Jay Bruce is here for the long haul so that leaves 2 OF spots to fill and we have Hamilton and Ervin that are knocking on the door....Choo would look great in our OF for one more year but that is not happening, he will get a 5 year deal....
The only other option I can see if they sign Choo is to deal Jay Bruce after next year....not so sure that will happen but we have all seen wilder things happen in baseball. I really like what I see from Ervin....Winker is 3 years away and he is young and looks like he is figuring it out....Keeping Choo means Bruce goes in my opinion. As mad as Jay makes me sometimes, I like his production and I like the way he is learning to hit backside and stay off the curveball in the dirt.....Jay would be a hard pill for me to swallow if they dealt him in order to keep choo.....I would not hate it, but it would be tough......Jay brings alot to the table.
