Lock Choo Up

Unread postby swerb » Sun Jun 05, 2011 9:55 pm

Perfect time to do it. Revenues above expectations, no money on the books going forward after Hafner expires, Choo playing like crap and coming off a DUI.

If Boras resists, we just plant a couple pounds of weed in his trunk and call in an anonymous tip. Drive his price down another mill a year.

Great if we can do it but I highly doubt Boras is one to sell low.

Thought this would be about arresting him for the money he is currently stealing from the Tribe.

We have Choo locked up for almost his entire proverbial prime (28-32). I don't really understand why we would want to potentially overpay when his career is on a downswing.

I mean, his 30's could be Raul Ibanez (really good) or Carlos Beltran (really bad).

I still think Choo is yet to reach his peak. Hes having a terrible first two months, sure. But I dont think its time to panic and say hes in decline.
