I know Boras is his agent, but he's always said he'd like to be on a winning team. Maybe we should make an attempt to sign him up.

What got me is that the Indians are becoming a popular team in South Korea... can we translate that into ticket sales/higher TV revenue by STO offering games in SK so we can keep Choo?

Yes, and what about some sort of baseball academy? South Korean players don't enter the MLB draft- right?

During spring training, I remember hearing or reading that Manager Acta was asked about or referenced Choo asking why can't the Tribe win now? That stuck in the back of my head, but I discounted it, figuring it was just player, coach speak. I reckon, Choo knew what he was talking about.

Very nice article, and it will suck the day we lose him, and I hope it is a clean break when he flees the coop. I just hope he ends up with the Dodgers, Giants, or some team that isn't in our division, or league. He is a very likable player.

Outr of curiosity, how many times do you all need to be Charlie Brown before you just smile and walk away from Lucy holding the ball for you?

The Donald will go Bruce Willis dome before a player like Choo re-ups in Cleveland.
