    Any chance at trading for Choo?

    The Indians are only 4.5 out of the division lead right now, but they are 11th out of 14 teams in the AL. Playoff odds at 9.6%, a few more losses this week and they could become sellers.

    As a batter Choo is perfect for us: left hander .380+ career OBP, lead off hitter, decent speed. He has one year left after this which will be slightly expensive $10 mil?, then free agency. The biggest drawback, could either Choo or Bruce play adequate center? He may be one guy worth putting some serious prospects down for if either could be a CF.

    Would be nice but why would the Indians part ways with him?

    We would have to give up a guy like Bailey plus prospects, and I still don't think the Indians would do it. Not gonna happen.

    If Choo can play CF I would be very interested. If not, I dont think so. Ludwig is actually having a better year at the plate and is play at an AS level over the past 30 days.

    Choo is a corner guy.

    If I am Walt - I ask Cleveland what it takes outside of Cingani, Hamilton and Stephenson to do this deal...


    Perhaps Stubbs and Corcino is enough?

    Sounds like the Tribe wants MLB ready players. I 'd offer Stubbs and Lotzkar / Hoover. Throw in Nefali Soto if you have too.

    I don't see the Indians giving up Choo for peanuts (stubbs) and AAA players. Also, he's played a grand total of 10 games in center and only one of those since 2006.

    I'd rather make a run at Norichika Aoki from the Brewers.
