Don't know much about Choo. I need to move up in SBs. Would Choo be a better pick than grabbing Roberts off the ww?

Choo is very good.

I wanted to pick him up but in my 16 team keeper...he was gone.

I know Choo has speed but what are we looking at for SB numbers.

Doesn't Willie Blooomquist warrant the starting spot ahead of Shin Soo Choo? Willie's numbers have been more than adequate this year.

Choo had been red hot of late and was hitting .327/.401/.506 overall. A left-handed hitter, he could move right into the same platoon role Reed occupied with Willie Bloomquist. Maybe he won't play quite that much initially, but he's definitely worth picking up in AL-only leagues. If he does get a couple of hundred at-bats over the rest of the season, he could swipe 10-12 bases.

bleh, a platoon guy. And the worst part is that Seattle starts its game so late that it would be pretty hard to know when to use him or not when everyone else could already be locked in.
