Re: Looking Ahead: 2014 Draft
On my reading, Walt's statement about re-signing Choo is so vague as to be meaningless. It says next to nothing beyond "we'll try."
It's meaningless in the sense that he has no way of knowing what Choo will decide. But in my opinion the use of "hopeful" and especially "confident" says a lot. My guess is that a) Castellini has signaled the payroll will be there, and/or b) Choo has signalled he's interested in staying.
