Shin-Soo Choo

Postby BigTex24 » Fri May 15, 2009 10:52 pm

He's quietly putting together a good season, can we expect him to keep up this pace with the stolen bases? He's currently on pace to put together a 20/20 season with 100 rbi. Is he on the same level as guys like Corey Hart/Jason Werth?

Funny you write this tonight, as I was just checking him out. Check his stats from this year (incl. tonight) and include last year's 2nd half. ;-D

FanGraphs had a nice write up on him this week and I am going to give him a shot on my squad.

Can't believe this guy is available in leagues. He has great discipline at the plate, can steal, now bats in the 4 hole and scores runs. His average wasn't great at the beginning, but that was because he was being a bit too patient. Now he is mixing in a good eye with aggressiveness. I look for this guy to have a 20/25 year.

Fun with numbers...

Take his 2nd half last year (238PAs), 2009 (151PAs), and extrapolate to 600 PAs (211PAs from 05/16/09 onward...):

.325AVG, 168H, 108R, 25HR, 110RBI, 83BB, 12 SB

Yeah, yeah, I know not an exact science predicting future success....interesting nonetheless.

Just dropped Delgado for him in a league where my one DL spot is occupied and my only other bench player is the suspended Manny. Dude's on base was .414 before today--seems to me like he is for real. He was a guy I was targeting preseason because of the discipline he showed last year, and if he continues to hit in the four hole you have yourself a cheap 20/20 player.

Nobody picked him up in my 12 team league.

I've been adding/dropping him with other players and nobody has picked up on it. I just added him and may have to keep him on my team.

I hate when people say things like this, but any league in which he is unowned isn't a league I'd even want to be in.
