Re: If Boras gets his way, Choo likely won't be a Red.
Boras' remark that 5yr/$100MM is "not in the ballpark" and that Choo will get more seems pretty reasonable to me.
There is nothing insane about that if you know the facts that Choo is the best offensive player among 2014 free-agent position players and that he's offensively even better than Cano who was born the same year as him and will seek $200 million contract.
Choo: .394wOBA(10th in MLB), 152wRC+(8th in MLB)
Cano: .384wOBA(16th in MLB), 142wRC+(18th in MLB)
Choo: .374wOBA, 135wRC+
Cano: .368wOBA, 126wRC+
