Choo stuff. 17 comments


Spring training is two weeks away, and it’s time to start looking at the season ahead, bleak as it may be.

Here is an article from T. R. Sullivan yesterday on mlb.com that talks about Choo and his mindset on DHing going into the season.

    Two weeks….yowza! 5 things that must happen.

    Odor is the 2016 version
    A closer develops
    Gallo improves
    At least two SPs have career years
    Calhoun makes a splash

      I think at least 5 SPs have to have career years. Aside from Hamels, they haven’t had such great careers.

      • JacobMcCandles

        Yep….just being hopeful.

  • FlappingGums

    I’m curious about how this works out. It’s clear as to how Choo feels about it.

    In two weeks it begins…
    I guess the real question this season will be how long before we know, for a fact, it’s over?
    I can’t say I’m excited to get this season underway for any reason other than just missing baseball.
    But then there is hope.
    In springtime there’s always hope. πŸ™‚

    A little deja vu from 2017 as Choo once again is saying he wants to play RF even though the Rangers plan to have Mazara there. In a way I can understand: Choo isn’t as bad a RFer as Mazara. While neither of them seems able to catch a fly ball that’s not routine, Choo has a little more speed and his arm is less erratic. But obviously the Rangers’ future lies with Maz and he needs OF playing time if he’s to have a chance of improving.

      I’m with you, but more impressed with Mazara. He has shown the ability to have a great arm. I think he has the potential to be a good RF. He definitely can hit. I’m glad he is a Ranger. He needs to be paying. Choo can DH and play some LF and some RF. Nothing forces him to play.

    Wager of the day……Eagles win the coin toss. NFC has won 18 of the last 20…..Welcome. : )

    • JacobMcCandles

      18 out of 21 LO

    Colon is a Ranger

  • GoRangers23

    WOW!……I…………??………

  • azrangerfan

    It’s a shame to even waste the paper for a contract regarding Colon. If we can’t find enough depth without Colon things are really really sad. But I think we all knew that already. Going to be a long summer.

      5 years too late.

        We only seem to get the good ones when they don’t work anymore. I really hope this outcome will be different.

      For all we know he could end up being out closer, He’s experienced enough to not have some of the mental downsides as Bush has shown.
