    Hee-Seop Choi claimed off waivers by the Red Sox from the Dodgers

    From Rotoworld:
    Red Sox claimed first baseman Hee-Seop Choi off waivers from the Dodgers.
    It was bound to happen one of these years. Rather than carry Choi initially, the Red Sox will probably option him to Triple-A and wait and see what kind of starts Kevin Youkilis and J.T. Snow get off to. It'll be the same deal as with Roberto Petagine last year, though we hope Terry Francona is a little more open-minded about letting Choi into the lineup. By June or July, maybe the 27-year-old will get a chance to take aim at the Pesky Pole. Since he's making just $750,000, it's a great roll of the dice for the Red Sox. Mar. 24 - 5:02 pm et

    Would have been a great roll of the dice for the Reds as well.

    Hatteberg is the answer evidently.

    The question is: Who was that guy scrubbing Narron's back in the shower last week?

    I do wonder what they're thinking sometimes. I really do.

    If you complain about not getting Hee-Shop frickin Choi, you just might be a Redsneck.

    You're right. He's only younger and better than the current Reds first baseman and he's cheap. What's to like about him?

    Because:

    A) He's not that good

    and

    B) The season hasn't started yet and already Hatteberg is the new Aurilia. Give it time.

    and

    C) Shealy, who many like better than Choi could still come available.

    Choi can't play second base, and there aren't any more marginally talented young pitchers on the 40 man roster to DFA?

    I checked this to see if it was true after I read this. I didn't realize he was so average last year, but if you could get Choi at 2004 form, especially Florida 2004 form, then you just swiped a real commodity for yourself there.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    A) He's only 27 years old

    B) He has 30 homerun potential, good OBP skills, and a good glove.

    C) Choi could have been had without giving up prospects. Shealy, while I like him better, will cost us prospects.

    Another smart move by the Red Sox. Just a great organizationm all around. I wish the Reds could consistently make some smart moves instead of handing over starting jobs to Hatteberg and Womack.

    How many would like to have Sean Casey back now?

    Had you known that Hatteberg would be the 1B, would you have still wanted the trade?
